|The second part of Reconstruction continues the main subject and focus on the Moscow art world during the 1990s, but concentrating on the period from 1995 through 2000. The first part of the project—which also included an educational program and a publication of the catalogue—ran from September though November 2013 and explored 1990-1995.|
The second part of the show has different participants (by the mid-1990s, the Center on Yakimanka, gallery 1.0, School, and Ridzhina had all closed down and the L gallery had ceased to be a leader in contemporary art).
The adversarial and subtle dialogue between the representatives of the Conceptual school and the Osmolovsky-Kulik-Brener group had fallen apart. Marat Guelman’s gallery became the leader for contemporary art in Moscow, while the artistic tendencies over this five year period had grown somewhat radicalized. With some delay than other countries, Moscow became obsessed with the ‘problem of corporeality,’ which can be seen in the works of many very different artists, from the radicals and classics of conceptualism, to representatives of neo-academism.
