about

Vasilisk Gnedov

«Death to Art: studies»

Vasilisk Gnedov was one of the most radically experimental poets of Russian Futurism. Gnedov is chiefly known for his Poem of the End, which consisted of its title alone on a blank page, and which the poet performed on stage using a silent gesture. The collection from which it came, Death to Art (1913), contained fifteen very short poems that gradually reduced in size from one line, to one word, one letter, and ultimately to Poem of the End. The poem has been compared to Kazimir Malevich's painting Black Square (1915), John Cage’s silent composition 4'33" (1952), and to Minimalism in general.

«Death to art studies» is the project of British High School of Design. Each study created by teacher or student of BHSD. Project produced and curated by Eugene Voronovsky, lecturer by BHSD, author of a lecture course «Technology and conceptualisation of sound». Project was presented 13’05’2019 at the Winzavod Contemporary Art Center.
