Please join the Harriman Institute and the Barnard College Department of Dance for a talk with Nicoletta Misler, retired Professor of Russian and East European Art at the Università di Napoli "L'Orientale," about her book The Russian Art of Movement, 1920-1930. Lynn Garafola, Professor Emerita of Dance, Barnard College, will moderate.
The Russian Art of Movement revisits the remarkable Choreological Laboratory established by Vasilii Kandinsky and researchers such as Aleksandr Larionov and Aleksei Sidorov in 1921. A unique institution in the history of New Dance in Europe and one of the many utopian projects of late Imperial Russian and early Soviet culture, the Laboratory sponsored conferences, publications, and exhibitions.
