      1. Catalog accompanying an exhibition dedicated to Soviet art of the Stalin era that was held at the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt in 2003/2004. One of the exhibition’s premises was that the art of this era shared much more in common with American mass culture than has been previously examined. See in particular Martina Weinhart, ‘The Will to Knowledge: Models for the Reception of Soviet Art in the West’ and ‘Georg Baselitz in Conversation with Boris Groys.’ This argumentation shares some theoretical and conceptual similarities with Susan Buck-Morss’s book Dreamworld and Catastrophe. Curator/author is a FORMER WEST researcher.
