Publisher Note

Infrastructures is a photo project about the political economy of the former Soviet Union. Using documentary and staged photography, and writing, it visualises and conceptualises the ideas, techniques, tactics, and narratives of power. Focusing on the physical and 'mental' infrastructures ('invisible structures'), the artists take on the role of culture critics to overcome the exoticising, 'Orientalist' perception of the post-Soviet area. The book consists of 50 chapters, each with photographs and an essay in English and Russian. The project has been selected for the 2019 Noorderlicht Festival of Photography in Groningen.
