*1959 in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
Vadim Zakharov has been an active participant in Moscow’s unofficial art scene and one of the key figures in Moscow conceptualism. His multidimensional activity as an artist, publisher, archivist, collector and book designer has involved dozens of exhibitions and publications. He works subtly and precisely with the pre-literal structure of language that once entranced the futurists. Only, unlike the futurists, Zakharov does not run away from the legacy of world culture but strives to meet it head-on.
