This book is about contemporary Russian culture in the 21st century. It explores some cutting edge visual artists, including the scandal-surrounded Alexei Gintoft-Belyaev, winner of the Kandinsky Prize. It discusses Russian literature of the 21st century in the context of globalization. It studies monuments, parks and leisure facilities, and advertising, as sites of memory. This volume investigates Russian culture at the turn of the twenty-first century, with scholars from Britain, Sweden, Russia and the United States exploring aspects of culture with regards to one overarching question: What is the impact of the Soviet discourse on contemporary culture? This question comes at a time when Russia is concerned with integrating itself into European arts and culture while enhancing its uniqueness through references to its Soviet past. Thus, contributions investigate the phenomenon of post-Soviet culture and try to define the relationship of contemporary art to the past.
