Slavs & Tatars, New York

The Bruce High Quality Foundation University is pleased to announce Slavs and Tatars’ 79.89.09 lecture at the School of Visual Arts in New York on Friday February 26th at 7pm as an offsite event in the BHQFU’s Edifying performance series. An intimate visual, oral, and written study of two key years (1979 and 1989), 79.89.09 looks at the Iranian Revolution, monobrows, modernity, the fall of communism, the Beach Boys, and mysticism to better understand the world in which we live.

A collaboration with Berlin-based culture bi-annual 032c, 79.89.09 was first presented at Moscow’s Triumph Gallery during the Cycles and Seasons festival in April 2009 before making its way to the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the opening lecture of the 2009-2010 Studium Generale at Amsterdam’s Rietveld Academy.

Printed Matter is pleased to announce a double-book presentation for Kidnapping Mountains and Love Me, Love Me Not: Changed Names, two titles by the collective Slavs and Tatars.
Recently published by Onestar Press as part of their ongoing artists’ book series, Love Me, Love Me Not: Changed Names uses textual diagrams to investigate the nominal tug-of-wars enacted over cities throughout the Eurasian region. As different political entities exercised control over the cities, naming enacts dominion in a way that the artists describe as "entire metropolises caught like children in the spiteful back and forth of a custody battle." Love Me, Love Me Not is part of a group show The Past is a Foreign Country at the Centre of Contemporary Art ’Znaki Czasu’ in Torun, Poland.

Published by Book Works, Kidnapping Mountains is a playful exploration of the muscular stories, wills, and defeat inhabiting the Caucasus region. Comprising two parts: an eponymous section addressing the complexity of languages and identities on the fault line of Eurasia, and Steppe by Steppe Romantics, a restoration of the region’s seemingly reactionary approaches to romance.

Thursday, February 25th, 5-7 PM
