Collective Actions: Audience Recollections from the First Five Years 1976-1981

Editor: Yelena Kalinsky | Reference: P2783 | ISBN: 978-0982409053 | Type: Publication

Active in Moscow since 1976, the Collective Actions group played a key role in the development of conceptual and performance art in the Soviet Union. Inspired by the work of John Cage, the organizers invited audiences to take part in minimal, outdoor actions in fields and forests on the edges of the city that explored the nature of the aesthetic event. The publication concentrates on the early period of field actions when the problems of documentation—how to capture and convey ephemeral action to non-participants—were just beginning to be considered.
