Troitsky @ Columbia

В следующий четверг в Харримане - Артемий Троицкий.

Back in the USSR: The History of Soviet Rock

Thursday, 04 November 2010, 6:00pm–8:00pm
Faculty House, Garden Room 1

Please join the Harriman Institute for a lecture by Artemy Troitsky.

Artemy Troitsky entered Moscow State University in the early 1970s under Brezhnev, where he became notorious for hosting illicit discos from one of the university canteens. His professional career continued in the same vein, with underground assessments of the Beatles and Deep Purple in illegal samizdat journals. By the mid-‘80s, however, he had entered the mainstream as editor of the Soviet Union’s most influential music papers. Troitsky’s views grew increasingly important and, as a consequence, he was promoted to even more noteworthy publications as the USSR collapsed.

He famously worked at Novaya Gazeta in the 1990s, and later hosted the hugely significant media show “Programma A.” Troitsky is the author of six books, and his most recent endeavor is a web-based endeavor entitled "TV-Click."

Последний раз мы виделись 13 лет назад, когда Журнал.ру устраивал с Троицким виртуальную конференцию на IRC, где его, в частности, спросили, какого размера у него член, и предложили выдвинуть в президенты.
