Architectural Conservation and Restoration in Norway and Russia. Ed. by Evgeny Khodakovsky and Siri Skjold Lexau. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. Copyright, 2018. Routledge Research in Architectural Conservation and Historic Preservation. 220 pp. 46 ills. 24 x 17 cm. LC 2017-16569 ISBN 9781138279926 In English.
Publisher's description: Norway and Russia have been closely related through the ages, both geographically and historically, and have experienced similar problems relating to climate, building maintenance and national wooden architecture. As a result, the parallel study of architectural conservation and restoration theories and practices in both neighboring Northern states makes for a stimulating collective monograph. Architectural Conservation and Restoration in Norway and Russia delves into the main challenges of historic and contemporary architectural preservation practices in the two countries. The book consists of three main parts: the discovery and preservation of historical architecture in the late nineteenth to early twentieth century; contemporary approaches to former restorations and the conservation and maintenance of historical architecture; and, finally, current questions concerning preservation of twentieth-century architectural heritage which, due to different building technologies and artistic qualities, demand revised methods and historical evaluation.

Russia: Art Resistance and the Conservative-Authoritarian Zeitgeist. Ed. by Lena Jonson and Andrei Erofeev. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. Copyright, 2018. Routledge Contemporary Russia and Eastern Europe Series, 78. 342 pp. 57 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781138733015 In English.
Publisher's description: This book explores how artistic strategies of resistance have survived under the conservative-authoritarian regime which has been in place in Russia since 2012. It discusses the conditions under which artists work as the state spells out a new state cultural policy, aesthetics change and the state attempts to define what constitutes good taste. It examines the approaches artists are adopting to resist state oppression and to question the present system and attitudes to art. The book addresses a wide range of issues related to these themes, considers the work of individual artists and includes besides its focus on the visual arts also some discussion of contemporary theatre. The book is interdisciplinary: its authors include artists, art historians, theatre critics, historians, linguists, sociologists and political scientists from Russia, Europe and the United States.

The Revolution Is Dead: Long Live the Revolution! from Malevich to Judd, from Deineka to Bartana. Ed. by Michael Baumgartner et al. Kunstmuseum Bern, 2017. Co-organzied by Zentrum Paul Klee, Schweiz. Published in association with Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 372 pp. 29 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783791356358 In English.
Publisher's description: The point of departure for the present publication is the strikingly innovative artistic spirit of the Russian avant-garde, along with the 'Socialist Realism' that became established after the revolution. It addresses the radical conceptions of the revolutionary artistic movements of the early 20th century and their significance for the breakthroughs to abstraction and Constructivism. It also traces the implications and the traces of ''Socialist Realism'' as an ideologically motivated pictorial formula up to the present day. Also investigated is the actuality and viability of revolutionary ideas and art with reference to numerous examples of both abstract and representational art. For those interested in the works and ideas of these movements, and in the artistic consequences of the October Revolution in general, this sumptuous publication offers fascinating insights and a comprehensive overview.
