“The Russian Schizorevolution”

Volkova and Shevelenko opted for an approach in which
 the idea of reconstruction takes a central place.
The Russian Schizorevolution is, for Volkova and Shevelenko,
a reconstruction of an exhibition that never took place, but
that could have taken place. The different artistic strategies
of the avant-garde of St. Petersburg from an era that can be
described as bureaucratic as well as despotic, are taken here
to their full potential in order to show the complex, but at the
same time merry play with authorship and signature
of this specific avantgarde.
