Interview with Alexandre Balashov, Art Critic and Curator of the AO UniCredit Bank Collection

The AO UniCredit Bank’s Art Collection is a one of a kind corporate collection including painting, sculpture and graphic art by Russian artists from the 1920s-1930s, which started in 1993. The specific distinction of the post-avant-garde art or the art of the 1920s–1930s is that it cannot, even for a short time, allow one artistic language to claim the dominant position in the new system of art projects.
