    Beschreibung "Any discussion of factography first has to deal, almost proleptically, with the
    conspicuous strangeness of the word “factography” itself, an awkward and selfconsciously
    technicist term coined in Russia in the latter half of the 1920s to designate
    a certain aesthetic practice preoccupied, as the lexical roots of the neologism
    fakto-grafiia would suggest, with the inscription of facts. Those who are familiar with
    contemporaneous avant-garde movements in other countries and who may also be
    skeptical of the early Soviet zeal for linguistic invention will wonder if factography is
    not simply another word for documentary. Despite indisputable filiations between
    factography and practices outside of Russia which were similarly engaged in the project
    of chronicling modernization and its concomitant transformations to the
    conditions of human experience, there are critical distinctions to be made between
    the Soviet factographic avant-garde and documentary as it is traditionally conceived." (Information des Anbieters; aus der Einleitung)
