About the event

As part of the two-day conferenceHegel In and Out of Russia, please join Boris Groys on Friday, April 12th for a gallery talk and small group tour of the conceptual and experimental exhibition “After History: Alexandre Kojève as a Photographer.” This exhibition presents the photographs, collected postcards, and hand-drawn itineraries of the French-Russian philosopher Alexandre Kojève (1902-1968) in a visual exposition of his philosophy.

The project presents the philosopher’s world view in the tumultuous postwar era as colonial history was being played out between the West and the so-called “Third World.” The James Gallery is the only US venue for the exhibition made in collaboration with BAK Utrecht, the Netherlands.
