Contextualizing Transition offers the reflections by the writers and critics who are reshaping contemporary Russian culture on the negotiations of borders between art and criticism, high and popular culture, visual and verbal media, commercial and state-sponsored publishing, ideological and corporeal identities, and universal and gendered subjects.
