The dramatic complications include "The Kid's" (Prince) miserable home life, where he suffers the brutalities of his father (well played by Clarence Williams III) and the youth's efforts to win the love of the beautiful Apollonia.

Tracing the Afterlives of Communism in Contemporary Art from Eastern Europe / Ksenia Nouril
Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, how have contemporary artists from Eastern Europe borne witness to the slow but steady disappearance of communism from everyday life? In its wake, what vestiges of this ideology were left behind? How do artists mediate these traces of their communist pasts by returning to this often-fraught history in artworks that then circulate as commodities on the global art market? Ksenia Nouril will address the historical turn in the recent work of Olga Chernyshe…
