CuratorLab 2017/18 (Eds.)Red Love: A Reader on Alexandra Kollontai
Kollontai. A Play by Agneta Pleijel


Red Love: A Reader on Aleksandra Kollontai stems from a yearlong research project by CuratorLab at Konstfack University together with Tensta konsthall, leading up to Dora García’s exhibition “Red Love” and its related public programing. A number of artists and thinkers revisit Kollontai’s ideas on the politics of love and their relation to current political, social and feminist struggles. The publication also includes the biographical play Kollontai from 1977 by distinguished Swedish writer Agneta Pleijel.
