"In Immortality for All: A Film Trilogy on Russian Cosmism by Anton Vidokle, the artist explores Russian Cosmism’s influence on the 20th century and its relevance to the present day. Combining ideas from the Western Enlightenment, Eastern philosophy, Russian Orthodox religion and Marxism, this utopian philosophy inspired a wide range of thinkers until it was driven underground by Stalinism in the late 1920s."
