> DESCRIPTION

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Tango with Cows: Book Art of the Russian Avant-Garde, 1910-1917, this symposium brings together scholars and artists to explore the Russian avant-garde's revolutiono f the book. Topics include the deliberately crude materials, the newly invented poetic language called zaum' ("beyonsense"), and the visual and literary tensions between parodic humor and apocalypse, the primitive and the urban, the sacred and the profane. Speakers will also consider thei nfluence of the Russian avant-garde book on visual poetry and the aesthetics of book production in the later decades of the twentieth century.
