The FBI has been promoting American artists, including Andy Warhol, says Russian dissident artist Mihail Chemiakin. He has created paintings, sculptures, costumes and scenic designs in his two homelands, Russia and the United States. In an interview with RT Documentary, Chemiakin also shares his thoughts on why the rich acquire contemporary art and why Malevich’s Black Square is a ‘tombstone’ for modern painters.
