In this 5 Questions interview, curator Anna Bitkina of the Creative Association of Curators (TOK) addresses the expanding role of the curator and art, specifically in Russia, where public space continues to be politically charged. She cites the legacies of the Soviet-era Houses of Culture and youth clubs as important, as their effects are still felt in Russian society. Bitkina concludes by urging us to be acutely conscious of a country or region’s socio-political context when working with global art practices today.
