Item description for Ilya Kabakov: Installations: Catalogue Raisonne 1983-2000 by Toni Stooss Oskar Batschmann...
The Struggle with one's own memories, especially those of an unofficial artist in the last decades of the Soviet Union, has been the dominating theme of Ilya Kabakov (born 1933 in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine) since his 1987 move to the west. Kabakov invites our voyeuristic gaze to enter a private sphere and reminds us of the ugly, depressing features of communism's decline, of the terror and one's neighbors' denunciations. Still today the reason behind Kabakov's artistic production has remained a recapitulation of his own past that is closely linked to the phenomena of disintegration and loss of meaning in Soviet civilization.
