SOPHIE PINKHAM ON THE STATE OF CONTEMPORARY RUSSIAN CUTLURE (NLR)

In her essay "Nihilism for Oligarchs," Sophie Pinkham (MARS-REERS '12, Slavic '19) writes about the state of Russian culture today and its standing on the world stage for New Left Review (Sept./Oct 2020). The multi-media extravaganza of Ilya Khrzhanovsky’s DAU—a controversy-courting product of the largesse of Russia’s oligarchic class—provides an instructive case study.
