Hannover, Sprengel Museum - Henie Onstad Art Centre Norway, 2012. Profusely illustrated in full colour. Decorated red cloth. Hardbound. 4to. 179 pp. (A fine, new copy). Text in English and German. Ilya Kabakov (born September 30, 1933), is a Soviet-born American conceptual artist, born in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. He worked for thirty years in Moscow, from the 1950s until the late 1980s. He now lives and works on Long Island. Throughout his forty-year plus career, Kabakov has produced a wide range of paintings, drawings, installations, and theoretical texts not to mention extensive memoirs that track his life from his childhood to the early 1980s. In recent years, he has created installations that evoked the visual culture of the Soviet Union, though this theme has never been the exclusive focus of his work. Unlike some underground Soviet artists, Kabakov joined the Union of Soviet Artists in 1959, and became a full-member in 1965. This was a prestigious position in the USSR and it brought with it substantial material benefits. In general, Kabakov illustrated children's books for 3 - 6 months each year and then spent the remainder of his time on his own projects. By using fictional biographies, many inspired by his own experiences, Kabakov has attempted to explain the birth and death of the Soviet Union, which he claims to be the first modern society to disappear. In the Soviet Union, Kabakov discovers elements common to every modern society, and in doing so he examines the rift between capitalism and communism. Rather than depict the Soviet Union as a failed Socialist project defeated by Western economics, Kabakov describes it as one utopian project among many, capitalism included. By reexamining historical narratives and perspectives, Kabakov delivers a message that every project, whether public or private, important or trivial, has the potential to fail due to the potentially authoritarian will to power.

Synopsis : Since about 2000, Ilya Kabakov has been slowly turning away from the installation pieces for which he is best known to return to his first medium, painting, with which he addresses personal experiences from the recent past as well as his childhood in Stalin’s Soviet Union. This catalogue presents 60 paintings and three models for unfinished installations.
