Essay by Amei Wallach, foreward by Amada Cruz

Ranging from 1969 through the early 1990s, the works in this volume have been rarely or never seen in this country. Ilya Kabakov’s installations are complex environments called “total installations,” which immerse viewers in other worlds: communal Soviet apartments, the studio of an untalented artist, or an old Russian school. Humorous and often melancholy narratives in the form of texts on paintings or drawings add to the poignancy of the works. This volume was published in conjunction with the 2000 CCS exhibition, Ilya Kabakov: 1969—1998
