In Edenia, a City of the Future

Yev­geniy Fiks and Laris­sa Bab­ji invit­ed artists to engage with Kalman Zingman’s 1918 Yid­dish-lan­guage utopi­an novel­la In der tsukun­ft-shtot ede­nia (In Ede­nia, a City of the Future), pub­lished in Kharkiv, Ukraine. They dis­played the results in an exhi­bi­tion at Yer­milov Cen­ter in Kharkiv, Ukraine in June 2017. Here they dis­cuss the nov­el, the process that led to the exhi­bi­tion, and the polit­i­cal and social real­i­ties that their project sought to address.
