MOSCOW — Lev Rubinstein, a Russian poet, essayist and political dissident during both the Soviet and Putin eras, died on Sunday from injuries sustained after he was hit by a car in Moscow. He was 76.

His death was confirmed by his daughter Maria in a brief statement on her LiveJournal account. Mr. Rubinstein was struck while crossing a street and had been placed in a medically induced coma. The Moscow authorities said that the driver had committed numerous traffic violations and “did not slow down,” and that they had opened criminal proceedings against him.

Mr. Rubinstein was considered one of the founders of the Russian conceptualism movement, an avant-garde fusion of art and prose that thumbed its nose at the restrictions of the Socialist Realism that predominated in the 1970s and ’80s.

One of his contributions to the movement was genre-bending “note card poems,” with each stanza printed on a separate card. He was inspired by the card catalogs he had encountered as a librarian at his alma mater, the Moscow Correspondence Pedagogical Institute, now known as Sholokhov Moscow State University for Humanities. But being subject to censorship encouraged him to search for a different medium.
