Where can I see the Khardzhiev collection?
A selection from the Khardzhiev collection can be viewed on this site. The collection is kept in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and is shown in changing displays in both the permanent exhibition and in temporary exhibitions. The literary and cultural-historical archive material collected by Khardzhiev can be viewed separately from the paintings, drawings and works on paper at RGALI (the Russian State Archive for Literature and Art) in Moscow. A digital copy of Khardzhiev’s archive can be viewed in the library of the Stedelijk Museum.
The artworks from the Khardzhiev collection are described in full in the academic catalogue Russian Avant-Garde: The Khardzhiev collection, complied by Geurt Imanse and Frank van Lamoen. This catalogue was presented at the opening of the exhibition of the same name in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam on October 2013. The catalogue is in Dutch and English and is also available online. In addition to a number of introductory essays on Khardzhiev and his collection, it contains 930 colour illustrations of work from the collection. Each work has been academically annotated and is introduced with a biography of the artist in question.
