Slavs and Tatars

Slavs and Tatars is an internationally-renowned art collective devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia. Their work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at MoMA in New York, SALT in Istanbul, Vienna Secession, Kunsthalle Zürich, Albertinum Dresden, and Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, among others. The collective’s practice is based on three activities: exhibitions, publications, and lecture-performances. In addition to their translation of the legendary Azerbaijani satirical periodical Molla Nasreddin (currently in its 2nd edition with I. B. Tauris), Slavs and Tatars have published eight books to date, most recently Wripped Scripped (2018) on the politics of alphabets and transliteration. The collective will curate the 33rd edition of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts, opening in June 2019.
