Abstract(s)
Employing the theories of Boris Groys and Mark Lipoveckij, this paper addresses the question of Dmitrij Prigov's role in the protest art practice of Roman Osminkin and Pussy Riot. The paper proves that both Osminkin and Pussy Riot do not just repeat Prigov's strategies, but these strategies are updated by ideological and political engagement. In the paper, this engagement is interpreted as the implementation of socialist realist principles into the principles of Moscow conceptualism. The result is that the original socialist realist aim to participate in the transformation of the world by the means of art is now suspended.
