Lately for school I have been engulfed in the reading of Soviet and Russian foreign policy as well as their ever convoluted, tortuous and actuated society. I have also been immersed in their art – propoganda, photography, film so this week I feel the need to share a little of the work which inspired so much of what is around us.
Propoganda, advertising I believe at its purest and finest. How can images, and words painted bring societies to come together and either change their way of life for either war or for a new government. Alexander Rodchenko, a Russian artist was a major force behind the Constructivist and Productivist movement which occurred after the Revolution in 1917.
