Dmitri Prigov was one of the key figures of Moscow Conceptualism and is well known as an artist, a poet and performer. His oeuvre defied all classification and includes sculptures, drawings, collages, installations and videos. Prigov operated in a transcendental zone between literature and visual art. His earliest texts already contain the seeds of his later artistic creations. It is only becoming clear now that Prigov’s work is a unified whole (Gesamtkunstwerk).
“I do not consider myself a poet. I am a cultural worker, in general.”
