Swing du Kazakhstan

1 x 48
Broadcaster:  Channel 4

Best known as the birthplace of the fictitious Borat, Kazakhstan is in fact a delightful country with an extraordinary artistic past, and an even more extraordinary artistic present.

 

Art critic Waldemar Januszczak discovers this when he travels there to investigate the shocking stories he has been hearing about the mad experimental art of modern Kazakhstan. Are the stories true? Does all this really go on? You bet. With its risky video installations, outrageous performance pieces, stunning nudity, desperate violence, and weird shamanism, the modern art of Kazakhstan will take your breath away.

 

This fascinating film explores the work of a remarkable range of Kazakh artists who are blurring the lines between the traditional and the modern, combining the ancient with the contemporary, and pushing the boundaries of ‘regressive progressive’ art.
