A Book About the Interpol Scandal
About the book

Today, Interpol is known mostly as the project where Alexander Brener destroyed the work of art of Wenda Gu and where Oleg Kulik performed a dog. And according to his role bit the spectators at the opening and, of course, ended at the police station. Apart from this, Interpol is also famous for an open letter, a document of protest, that some participants of the project, the so-called “Western side,” wrote against the attitude of the members of the so-called Eastern side, and sent it to the world’s art community. So in the art world Interpol is probably also known as the paradigmatic East-West issue project. How boring! The paradox, however, is that when we, who created this project and participated at it, finally leaving aside what came out of it, try to reconstruct the narrative of what happened, inevitably have to conclude that our stories are different, that our memory is unreliable, that there is no simple solution to the problem. This book is a collection of essays initiated by the Interpol project.
