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.
