ELENA KALKOVA MA 21 GAC
A graduate of the first Liberal Arts MA degree, Global Arts & Cultures, Elena Kalkova examines the Russian queer cultural production from the Medieval Slavs up to the current goverment under Vladimir Putin. With an interest in public art and contemporaneous intersections, Kalkova argues that Russia's recovery from generational regime censorship and the institutioned "forced memory loss" feminist and queer diasporas contain a great capacity to inform Russian art history and our contemporary landscape.
