This slipcased set presents the first complete overview of New York-based, Russian-born artist Ilya Kababov's career. The authors explore the centrality of 130 paintings created between 1957 and 1987 in Moscow, works that evoke the banality of everyday life in the Soviet Union and comment on the system's unfulfilled promises. This book follows the 2003 publication of the catalogue raisonné of Kabakov's installations.
