As some of Dmitry Prigov's texts belong to a special region of poetics that he himself defined as a ‘transitory mode’, instead of referentiality, such texts develop almost mystical relations to an ‘other world’ and should be read as gestures of transition from one universe to the other. The mode of transition and penetration introduces a special kind of temporality and gives a support for images and signs (paper) a new dimension of depth. Surfaces are literally transformed into media - deep spaces of mediation.  

Professor Mikhail Iampolski is Professor of Comparative Literature and Russian and Slavic Studies at New York University. He has previously taught at Harvard University, University of Lausanne, and at the Moscow State Institute of Cinema Arts. He has held the position of Getty Scholar at the J.

Mikhail Iampolski undertook his Ph.D. at the Russian Academy of Pedagogical Sciences and his B.A. at the Moscow Pedagogical Institute.
