The Art Without Death: Russian Cosmism group exhibition is on at Berlin’s Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW), opening September 1 and running to October 3.

The show brings together both Russian avant-garde work, curated by Boris Groys and drawn from the George Costakis collection, and contemporary work, including films by Anton Vidokle and Arseny Zhilyaev‘s installation reflecting “on the philosophical, scientific and artistic concepts of Russian Cosmism.”

Exploring the concept of Russian Cosmism and its dedication to”material immortality and resurrection,” as well as travel to outer space, there will also be a two-day conference looking at the intersection of science, technology and art. The event is part of 100 Years of Nowwhich is a four year program “undertaking an analysis of the present time by linking back to historical utopias.”
