Featured Collections: Pushkin House Recommended Reading

We have put together new curated collections as a joint project between our public programming and bookshop, in the context of the discourses we are exploring at Pushkin House and in response to key debates taking place in the cultural and academic spheres.

Here are a wide range of voices from Russian, Eastern European and post-Soviet geocultural spaces and beyond: from artists, academics, curators and writers, as well as from ordinary people.

The collections include books on art, culture and literature in the context of the Russian and Soviet imperial legacy; Russian nationalism and historical memory; and the art world and institutions during times of upheaval as well as other key themes. You can browse the full list here.
