Molla Nasreddin "Slavs and Tatars"

Swiss Institute Contemporary Art

poster for Molla Nasreddin "Slavs and Tatars"

This event has ended.

Swiss Institute presents an exhibition in conjunction with the U.S. launch of Slavs & Tatars book Molla Nasreddin: the magazine that would've, could've, should've, a legendary Azeri political satire and perhaps the most important Muslim periodical of the 20th century.

In the SI Reading Room, Slavs and Tatars will present a select archive of printed matter on the rambunctious, rowdy case study of complexity otherwise known as the Caucasus, sandwiched between the Bolshevism of Russia, revolutionary Islam of Iran and a declining Ottoman Empire.
