One Day Zeuxis and Parrhasius… Contemporary Art: Practical Observations
Moscow: Tsentrpoligraf, 2017

The book contains articles and essays which were written in so called aesthetic regime (Jacques Rancière). They focus on poetics of art, personalistic and “directional” world views, and implementation of personal artistic intentions. Being a critic and interpreter, Alexander Borovsky has a unique talent to grow into particularities of artistic practice. Portrait essayism is his forte. Alexander Borovsky’s “loquacious view” (Blandine Kriegel) encourages visitors to find their own directions when in a contemporary art space.
