Massimo Maurizio, Professor of Slavic Studies at the University of Turin, specialist in unofficial Soviet literature, and translator of contemporary Russian poetry will speak on the unique type of mythological and post-folklore vision in poetics of Igor Kholin and Genrikh Sapgir, along with the place of the Lianozovo school within the domain of unofficial poetry of 1940s–1970s, its relation to traditions of the avant-garde, and its meaning for contemporary authors.
 
Kholin and Sapgir. Manuscripts
Igor Kholin (1920–1999) and Genrikh Sapgir (1928–1999) were members of the Lianozovo group, a loose-knit community of underground artists and writers which centered around artist Evgeny Kropivnitsky at his home in a barrack in Lianozovo, on the outskirts of Moscow. Although Kholin and Sapgir’s “poetry of the barracks” was not officially published until the advent of perestroika, it was distributed via samizdat (self-publishing) and became part of Soviet folklore, often quoted by people who had never read the original texts. Both poets found official work writing books and film scripts for children, and generations of Soviet children grew up reading their poems. Friends since 1952, and seemingly always together, Kholin and Sapgir are two key figures in the history of Soviet Nonconformist literature.
 
Kholin and Sapgir. Manuscripts features recent acquisitions from Garage Archive Collection, including previously unpublished manuscripts and limited edition books by Viktor Pivovarov, rare photographs, audio recordings, and video interviews. Animated films scripted by Sapgir and children’s books by both poets will also be presented.
