Alexander Kosolapov

Lenin and Coca-Cola

Alexander Kosolapov (*1943) is one of the most remarkable “gobetweeners” of contemporary art, constantly shifting between countries, ideologies, cultures, and aesthetic languages. His paintings and sculptures show us corporate logos, cartoon characters, portraits of Soviet leaders, self-portraits and figures borrowed from antiquity. Although his oeuvre displays an extraordinarily variety, there is still one theme present in each of Kosolapovʼs works: ideology. His works arenʼt images or objects, they are much more invisible concepts, that reveal ideological strategies with the help of advertising and religion. The new publication presents impressive works of the artist shown in the first retrospective in Russia at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art.
