Abstract [en]

In contemporary Russian film, music and fashion, a recycling of protagonists, aesthetics and ideas from the late Soviet underground and the post-Soviet years during the 1990s can be observed. What at that time were utopias of a Russian ideological and aesthetic alternative to the West are now becoming increasingly mainstream. The artists view the world through metamodern eyes. They fluctuate between hope and melancholy, empathy and apathy, between the modern search for meaning and the post-modern doubt about the meaning of everything. Their cultural practice is the harmless, commercially attractive imitation of a revolution. The culture of the metamodern fits in with the current central political theme in Russia: "Globalisation without westernisation", incorporation into the global market, while at the same time turning its back on the norms of the "first world".

In the framework of this new aesthetics of imperfection, the art of Sergei Shnurov and the band Leningrad can be regarded the most successful project in Russia in ideological and commercial terms.
