This comprehensive overview of Ilya Kabakov’s installation work of the 1990s contains over 100 images across more than 400 pages, and includes Kabakov’s own commentary on his works.

Ilya and Emilia Kabakov are American artists of Russian descent who work together on environments that merge elements of everyday life with elements of the conceptual. Although their work is deeply rooted in the social and cultural context of the Soviet Union in which the Kabakovs grew up, it nevertheless has universal significance.
