founded 2006, Eurasia

Slavs and Tatars is a faction of polemics and intimacies devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia. The collective’s work spans several media, disciplines, and a broad spectrum of cultural registers (high and low).

The collective’s practice is based on three activities: exhibitions, books and lecture performances.
