Postmodern Crises collects previously published and yet unpublished Mark Lipovetsky's articles on Russian literature and film. Written in different years, they focus on cultural and aesthetic crises that, taken together, constitute the postmodern condition of Russian culture. The reader will find here articles about classical subversive texts (such as Nabokov's Lolita), performances (Pussy Riot), and recent, but also subversive, films. Other articles discuss such authors as Vladimir Sorokin, such sociocultural discourses as the discourse of scientific intelligentsia; post-Soviet adaptations of Socialist Realism, and contemporary trends of "complex" literature, as well as literary characters turned into cultural tropes (the Strugatsky's progressors). The book will be interesting for teachers and scholars of contemporary Russian literature and culture; it can be used both in undergraduate and graduate courses.

The touch and movement senses have a large place in the modern arts. This is widely discussed and celebrated, often enough as if it represents a breakthrough in a primarily visual age. This book turns to history to show just how significant movement and the sense of movement were to pioneers of modernism at the turn of the 20th century. It makes this history vivid through a picture of movement in the lives of an extraordinary generation of Russian artists, writers, theatre people and dancers bridging the last years of the tsars and the Revolution. Readers will gain a new perspective on the relation between art and life in the period 1890-1920 in great innovators like the poets Mayakovsky and Andrei Bely, the theatre director Meyerhold, the dancer Isadora Duncan and the young men and women in Russia inspired by her lead, and esoteric figures like Gurdjieff. Movement, and the turn to the body as a source of natural knowledge, was at the centre of idealistic creativity and hopes for a new age, for a 'new man', and this was true both for those who looked forward to the technology of the future and those who looked back to the harmony of Ancient Greece. The book weaves history and analysis into a colourful, thoughtful affirmation of movement in the expressive life.

""Peindre. Un homme a passé sa vie à peindre. Et quand je dis sa vie entendez bien. Le reste est gesticulation. Peindre est sa vie. Que peint-il ? Des fruits, des fleurs, l'entrée d'un roi dans une ville ? Tout ce qui s'explique est autre chose que la vie. Que sa vie. Sa vie est peindre. Inexplicablement." écrit le poète Louis Aragon. Lorsque Marc Chagall disparaît le 28 Mars -1985, la reconnaissance de son oeuvre est universelle. Peu de personnes cependant ont en mémoire les liens indéfectibles qu'il a toujours entretenus avec la poésie, en écrivant lui-même, gravant ou peignant au contact des écrivains et poètes de son temps. Sur les chemins de la poésie et dans ce "grand jeu de la couleur" dont a parlé son ami André Malraux, il aura forgé une oeuvre atypique, intense et généreuse. L'exposition, présentée au Fonds Hélène & Édouard Leclerc pour la Culture, réunit des oeuvres majeures provenant de musées internationaux et de collections privées. Ces oeuvres illustrent le thème de la Bible et les événements qui ont marqué la vie de Chagall: la révolution, la guerre, l'exil... ainsi que des textes essentiels du passé qui lui ont servi d'appui pour de grands livres illustrés: Jean de La Fontaine, Gogol... Des écrivains ou poètes dont Chagall fut l'ami proche, Guillaume Apollinaire, André Malraux, Louis Aragon... disent également d'autres rencontres d'exception qu'il fit en son temps."--Page 4 of cover.

This volume focuses on several Russian authors among many who immigrated to Israel with the "big wave" of the 1990s or later, and whose largest part of their works was written in Israel: Dina Rubina, Nekod Singer, Elizaveta Mikhailichenko and Yury Nesis, and Mikhail Yudson. They are popular and active authors on the Israeli scene, in the printed and electronic media, and some of them are also editors of the renowned journals and authors of literary and cultural reviews and essays. They constitute a new generation of Jewish-Russian writers: diasporic Russians and new Israelis.
