Victor Tupitsyn: The Museological Unconscious: Communal (Post)Modernism in
Russia (2009)

"In The Museological Unconscious, Victor Tupitsyn views the history of
contemporary art through a distinctly Russian lens, a “communal optic” that
registers the influence of such characteristically Russian phenomena as
living, communal perception, and communal speech practices. This way of
at the subject allows him to gather together a range of artists [...]

perfect formation of structure. As Bök [...]

Your Private Sky: R. Buckminster Fuller: The Art of Design Science (1999)

"'Bucky' was one of the most revolutionary technological visionaries of this
century. As an architect, engineer, entrepreneur, poet, he was a
quintessentially American, self-made man. But he was also an outsider: a
technologist with a poet's imagination who already developed theories of
environmental control in the thirties ("more with less") and anticipated the
globalization of [...]

Georges Bataille: Blue of Noon (1957–) [FR, EN, ES]

"Set against the backdrop of Europe’s slide into fascism, this
twentieth-century erotic classic takes the reader on a dark journey through
psyche of the pre-war French intelligentsia, torn between identification
the victims of history and the glamour of its victors. One of Bataille’s
overtly political works, it explores the ambiguity of sex as [...]
