Ilya Kabakov: Paintings/Gemälde 1957 - 2008

Catalogue Raisonné
Ilya Kabakov (b. 1933) is currently one of the world’s most important and influential artists from the former Soviet Union. Following the publication of a two-volume catalogue raisonné of Kabakov’s installations in 2003, a complete overview of Kabakov’s paintings is now being made available for the first time.
The focus of this catalogue raisonné is on 130 works produced by the artist in Moscow between 1957 and 1987, when Kabakov created imaginary characters in his pictures to portray the banality of everyday life in the Soviet Union – a downright sardonic commentary on the system’s promises and utopias that were never delivered upon, but also a parable on humankind
