Oksana Bulgakowa FEKS. The Factory of Eccentric Actor

[ 304 pages | ca. 50 graphics | ISBN: 3-9804989-1-3 ]

This monograph is devoted to the enfants terribles of the Soviet avant-garde of the 1920s. The Factory of the Eccentric Actor (FEKS) was founded in 1921 in Petrograd by Grigori Kozintsev (1905 – 1972) and Leonid Trauberg (1902 – 1990) and combined the training of actors with collective artistic production in theatre and film. The FEKS group perceived Eccentrism as a new direction within the avant-garde that sought to find a place between Futurism, Surrealism and Dada.
