In Yiddish Cosmos NY-based and Moscow-born artist Yevgeniy Fiks offers an alternative view on the Soviet history - by looking at it from the position of the Soviet space conquest and Soviet Jewry, he  creates a futuristic narrative where the ideas of technological development merge with the principles of Yiddish culture and reinterpretation of the figure of a Soviet refusenik and his struggle for liberty of movement.

Yevgeniy Fiks is a multidisciplinary, conceptual artist born in Moscow and based in New York City since 1994. His medium includes painting, drawing, performance, and book arts. Fiks defines himself as  "the Post-Soviet artist», one who has the responsibility to raise the proper understanding and critical reflection of Soviet history in order for Post-Soviet societies to move forward. His works explore the dialectic between Communismand "the West" and are based on historical research, usually of forgotten and unresolved Cold War narratives.
