Item description for Ilya/Emilia Kabakov: Where Is Our Place? (Multilingual Edition) by David Elliott, Emilia Kabakov & Ilya Kabakov...
Who is the greatest? Who today can define himself as the greatest? Ilya Kabakov, father of Russian Conceptualism, and his wife Emilia, ask these very questions in Where is Our Place? A project about the paradoxical contrast between contemporary and past art, this book meditates on the inner workings of the art system and artistic experience, identifying the importance of and need for a new critical and ethical awareness in our reception of art. Here different eras exist simultaneously in an incongruous art museum outside of time: contemporary, past, and perhaps also an imaginary projection into the future.
