The workshop on “Art, Technology and Modernity in Russia and Eastern Europe” set out to reexamine the relationship between technology and aesthetics. It brought together literary scholars, film and architectural historians to suggest a more nuanced analysis of the role of technology in the artistic and political processes taking place in Russia, Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union and to delineate the differences between the forms of modernity they imagined. The essays selected for the present volume are not limited to a single discipline or theoretical approach. But they are united by an attempt to articulate varieties of relationship between art and technology in Russia and Eastern Europe which are neither utopian and filled with a plenitude that is easy to dismiss, nor equivalent to some kind of alienation as an ‘other’ to historical modernism.
