The Russian Avant-Garde Goes Underground

Saturday, Apr 20, 2013 2:00p

In the late 1920s the group of young Russian writers who called themselves OBERIU seemed poised for avant-garde stardom, but the emergence of the Stalinist state, with its repression of avant-garde art, drove them underground. The editors and translators of Alexander Vvedensky’s An Invitation for Me to Think and Daniil Kharms’s Notebooks will discuss the lives and works of these writers, whom the Times Literary Supplement, The Nation and The Believer call “as relevant today as ever.”
