Vortrag von Mikhail Minakov (Frankfurt/Oder, Kiev)

Revolution is the event of launching new beginnings in the public sphere, and thus modernity is being constructed through revolution. In the 20th century, Ukraine has gone through a series of revolutions: in 1917/22, 1932/39, 1945/49, 1953/56, 1989/91; however instead leading to modernization, they had – after shortlived progresses – the reverse effect.

In his lecture, Mikhail Minakov will review the logic of socio-political experimentation in 20th century Ukraine and the revolutionary practices in Eastern Europe.
