Project

Imprint and Tactility as Cultural Techniques in Russian Modernism

Summary: What you touch, touches you back. Writing and painting start in the tactile interaction between hand and surface. At the same time tactility is in the nature of violence and torture. The project investigates a shift in Russian modernism from the predominating
nexus between image and eye, to the skin. On basis of the skin’s capacity for perception, suffering, imprint and imagination, I intend to identify tactile strategies in the memory of Stalin’s terror.
