Moscow Conceptualism

I must admit I'd never heard of Moscow Conceptualism until I came across today's BBC video on the subject (title link). This Russian school of art - anti-authority and avant-garde - sprang up in the wake of Glasnost two decades ago. Sounds pretentious, but some of it had a sense of humour as you can see from this spoof advert with Lenin promoting Coca-Cola. You'll find the exhibition in the Calvert 22 Gallery in Shoreditch, east London: Field of Action: The Moscow Conceptual School in Context, A special adaptation for Calvert 22 (CLICK). The exhibition runs until 28 August, entry free.
