Immortality for All: A Film Trilogy on Russian Cosmism by Anton Vidokle

Friday, February 16, 2018 6 pm - 9 pm

Immortality for All: A Film Trilogy on Russian Cosmism by Anton Vidokle 

Opening Reception Friday, February 16 at 6 p.m. 
Exhibition on view through Saturday, August 11

Founded by an eccentric Moscow librarian in the 19th century, the philosophy of Cosmism posits that the common task of all forward-looking peoples is to solve the problem of death and, eventually, to resurrect the dead. Combining ideas from the Western Enlightenment, Eastern philosophy, Russian Orthodox religion and Marxism, Cosmism inspired a wide range of thinkers, including the founder of the Soviet space program. Scanning Siberian, Kazakh and White Sea landscapes for its influences in Soviet-era art, architecture and engineering, Russian-American artist Anton Vidokle searches for contemporary traces of Cosmisms legacy.

The exhibition will be closed from Sunday, March 25 — Thursday, May 24.
