and someone said “I’m always on strike, I’m a poet“
in his 2004 essay MY FASCISM Kirill Medvedev says you can see how a person can become kind
of crazy from all the various ideological streams moving through his mind in impossibly quick succession
MY FASCISM is an essay about the relation of politics and art in 2004 in Russia,
how some artists on the far right had made a powerfully vital, syncretic, and dangerous art.
Kirill argues against attachment to an idealized past, the old culture: In Russia right now we’re
all frankensteins, pieced together from various dead traditions. The maximum that we have, right now is air.”
