Design without Frontiers: Interdisciplinarity & Collaboration in Soviet Art, Architecture and Design

20 September – 21 September 2012

A two day conference based at CRASSH, West Road, Cambridge. Creative practice in Soviet Russia was marked by unprecedented emphasis on collaborative endeavour, reaching across disciplinary boundaries. Architects, poets, painters and designers were united in formal and informal collaborative networks, leading to innovative design collectives, and to a unique erosion of any lasting divisions between architectural, graphic, textile, theatre, and urban design. The conference will include sessions examining specific items within the exhibition, alongside interdisciplinary papers from an international field of researchers.
