The catalog Anna Jermolaewa is published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther und Franz König, Köln in conjunction with the artist’s exhibition at the Austrian pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition — La Biennale di Venezia 2024. The book documents the works Anna Jermolaewa presents in her contribution in short essays, numerous installation views, and research materials offering an in-depth look at the background and development process of these works.

In the second section, philosopher and art theorist Boris Groys delves into the cultural, social, and political meaning of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake in the Soviet Union as weil as other aspects of the political element in Jermolaewa’s practice. In her equally insightful essay, cultural scientist Aleida Assmann deals with themes such as flight and displacement, travel, and memory in the work of Anna Jermolaewa.
