Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the history of modernism in Russia. It contends that modernism in Russia is uniquely resistant to the binary oppositions according to which Russian cultural movements and their protagonists have commonly defined themselves. The article explores the premise that Russian modernism was neither consistently international or outward-looking, nor did it look exclusively to the future. It suggests that the staged factionalism among Russian futurists contrasted sharply with their responses to their foreign counterparts or their Russian literary predecessors.

Keywords: modernism, Russia, cultural movements, factionalism, futurism
