The Dictionary of Moscow Conceptualism, edited by Andrei Monastyrsky – the leader of the "Collective Actions" group (hereafter abbreviated as KD, for the Russian Kollektivnye deistvia) – was first published in Russian in 1999. The Dictionary may be regarded as a discursive map of Moscow Conceptualism, a map that charts the key concepts and ideas that emerged and circulated within this tradition in the course of several decades. The mot à mot translation of this publication's title is "Dictionary of Terms of the Moscow Conceptual School," where the term "school" refers to the three generations of conceptualists in which younger artists were mentored by older, as well as to the fact that many of these artists and poets have regarded their artistic and aesthetic practices as an ongoing epistemological project, that is, as an investigation of art's conditions of possibility. In this regard the work of the Moscow conceptualists, and of the "Collective Actions" group in particular, follows the agenda of the conceptual art of the second half of the last century, one of the main tasks of which was to investigate the nature of art.
