Renata Litvinova’s North Wind: a discussion with Inna Kushnaryova

Imaginary worlds and alternative realities are still among the most popular themes in contemporary culture, becoming ever more creative and surprising. How do hybrid art genres comprising elements of (anti)utopia, camp aesthetics and alternative history help define social reality and, in the broadest sense, the current state of the world?
