“Rejuvenation and immortality are going to comprise the defining technological imaginary of our time.This will also constitute the ultimate political question: Will biotechnology lead to perpetual youth and longevity for the rich elite, or to an immortality for all? Everything is pointing to this.”
–Simeon Sorkin

Published in parallel with the exhibition of the same title at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, this volume is the first and singular collection of its kind, in which contemporary and resurrected voices convene around the century-old, increasingly urgent revolutionary universe expanded from cosmist thought.  

The launch event will coincide with a guided tour of Art Without Death: Russian Cosmism. The exhibition, featuring works made and selected by Anton Vidokle, Boris Groys, and Arseny Zhilyaev, is on view at HKW until October 3.
