Slavs and Tatars: Salty Sermon, 24 Nov 2023 — 27 Jan 2024

Slavs and Tatars: Salty Sermon

eastcontemporary, via Giuseppe Pecchio 3 20131 Milan, Italy

eastcontemporary, in partnership with SPRINT—Independent Publishers and Artists’ Books Salon, present the first solo show in Milan dedicated to work of Slavs and Tatars.

The exhibition gathers pieces from different work cycles to give an overview of their multifaceted production. The selection of artworks mirrors Slavs and Tatars’ investigation of the organic relationship between the role of language and the practice of reading, and the resulting cultural and geopolitical phenomena. Founded in 2006, Slavs and Tatars is a “faction of polemics and intimacies devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia.” The Berlin-based collective explores the complexities of this region by challenging stereotypical heritages and dominant narratives. Their practice researches identity, language, traditions, and myths through exhibitions, books, and lecture-performances. They have published over twelve books and recently opened the Pickle Bar, a Slavic aperitivo bar-cum-project space next to their studio. 


Recent solo and group shows include Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, (Los Angeles), Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler (Berlin), CHAT (Hong Kong), MHKA (Antwerp), Henry Moore Institute, (Leeds), the 58th Venice Biennale (Venice), Humboldt Forum (Berlin), Kunsthalle Osnabrück (Osnabrück), Hayward Gallery (London) and Pinakothek der Moderne (Munich), among many others.
