The Mitki and Art of Postmodern Protest in Russia. 

Novoye Literaturnoye Obozreniye, Moscow, 2021

The Mitki group forms a crucial and under-researched page in the history of Russian art of the 1980s. In their satirical texts, music, films, and performances, the Mitki created politically polyvalent dissident art resembling the European avant-garde and the American counterculture. Apart from literature, journalism, and art criticism, the American scholar Alexandar Mihailovic draws upon his own extensive interviews with the Mitki — Dmitry Shagin, Vladimir Shinkarev, Olga and Alexander Florensky, Viktor Tikhomirov and others — which touch upon state authoritarianism, militarism, and social restrictions from the Brezhnev Era to the present day.
