Slavs and Tatars on Reading as a Collective Experience
The founders of the anonymous art collective Slavs and Tatars bring together their diverse Polish, Iranian and American backgrounds as they explore the history, culture and politics of the Eurasian borderland and attempting to revive the culture of the region. They started out as a sort of "reading group" or "book club", sharing rare or out-of-print publications of an anthropological and linguistic bent with each other and a growing group of friends. Their evolution into the production of works of art and their own publications was a gradual, but a natural one, always grounded in the "act of reading together, not just the act of reading, but also redeeming the act of reading".
