Working in Russia and internationally, Viktor Misiano (born 1957 in Moscow) was a key figure in the development of Moscow's art scene after the breakup of the Soviet Union. In 1993, he founded Moscow Art Magazine, Russia's first and only independent art journal.
His writing was always an integral part of his curatorial practice, expanding beyond the cultural and artistic context in Russia to contemplate the global dynamics of the post-1989 world—a world haunted by unresolved contradictions between East and West, institutions and communities, and art and societies in transition.
