This two-volume, slipcased set presents the first complete overview of iconic New York-based, Russian-born artist Ilya Kabakov’s paintings. Centered around 130 works produced by Kabakov in Moscow between 1957 and 1987–when he used imaginary characters in his paintings to portray the banality of everyday life in the Soviet Union, providing both a parable on humankind and sardonic commentary on the system’s unfulfilled promises and undelivered utopias–this comprehensive catalogue raisonne follows the publication of a two-volume catalogue raisonne of Kabakov’s installations in 2004 and includes important essays by curator and critic Robert Storr and acclaimed late-Soviet Postmodern art and literature expert Boris Groys.
