From the time the word kul'tura entered the Russian language in the early nineteenth century, Russian arts and letters have thrived on controversy. At any given time several versions of culture have coexisted in the Russian public sphere. The question of what makes something or someone distinctly Russian was at the core of cultural debates in nineteenth-century Russia and continues to preoccupy Russian society to the present day. When Art Makes News examines the development of a public discourse on national self-representation in nineteenth-century Russia, as it was styled by the visual arts and popular journalism. Katia Dianina tells the story of the missing link between high art and public culture, revealing that art became the talk of the nation in the second half of the nineteenth century in the pages of mass-circulation press. At the heart of Dianina's study is a paradox: how did culture become the national idea in a country where few were educated enough to appreciate it? Dianina questions the traditional assumptions that culture in tsarist Russia was built primarily from the top down and classical literature alone was responsible for imagining the national community. When Art Makes News will appeal to all those interested in Russian culture, as well as scholars and students in museum and exhibition studies.

""This book is an important contribution to Russian Cultural Studies and will be welcomed by all scholars of Imperial Russia."-Canadian Slavonic Papers "This book will prove useful and interesting to a wide audience, from those who seek new material to explain this complex period to students, to those who are researching the deeper themes of national identity and cultural tradition with which its rich content engages."-Slavonic and East European Review "When Art Makes News is a rich resource that deepens our understanding about the fashioning of identity and the role of public discourse and counter-discourse in that process."-Modern Language Review "This is an intriguing work, smoothly written and with plenty of necessary illustrative examples of the major artistic endeavours of the period. Dianina's imaginative and persuasive discussion of the relationship between art and national identity will appeal to a wide readership: as well as historians of late Imperial Russia, those interested in the fields of cultural studies and museology should gain much from reading this important work."-European History Quarterly "
