From the mid-1960s he became one of the main actors of the dissident Moscow art scene, and who did not want to surrender to the principles of “socialist realism”. No wonder then that Kabakov – although the main representative of Conceptualism – was soon an outcast of the official culture apparatus, without getting contracts and without any prospect of ever to enjoy an exhibition. “For a long time looked upon us as at night from aircraft dropped intelligence officers with a pallet, which, committed disguised as artists, especially secret sabotage. They saw in us a clear non-artists, agents of the CIA. We were simply criminals,” said described Kabakov In retrospect, the experience of that time, the molded him today and his art of the seal are pressed.

There he met his first love again, the art dealer Emilia, already left 20 years before him, the Soviet Union, had both married and work since then closely together. Kabakov’s installations were now represented in more than 500 exhibitions, his work was shown in 1992 at the Documenta as well as in the Biennale Venice, he received numerous awards such as the Art Prize of Aachen, de Max Beckmann Prize, the Joseph Beuys Prize and the Gosla Kaiserring. in flies and angels make the two well-known documentary filmmaker Kerstin Stutterheim and Niels Bolbrinker on the search for the universe of Ilya Kabakov. In conversations with him and Emilia, but also in field trips in his pictures worlds they explore the connections between life and art, and show a true hero of our time – an artist who, against all odds gave up never the faith (s) is a utopia. What they will succeed is truly a new approach to Kabakov’s art, which seems at first glance often bulky and heavy.
