I’ve been looking forward to this exhibition since I met Dina Akhmadeeva, a contributing editor, on the airplane coming back to London from Venice Biennale in August. Being born and growing up during Soviet Union time I still well remember Soviet propaganda posters that were among the most powerful tools to influence masses. It’s been exactly 100 years ago since such posters appeared, targeting a large number of illiterate workers and peasants and promoting a new communist ideology. Bold colors,explicit texts, straight forward imagery formed a distinctive style of the Soviet poster art. The exhibition features work from the graphic designer David King’s collection and spans commuinist visual culture between 1905-55. It was the time that gave rise to the Russian avant-garde, when artists were rejecting the past and seeking innovative forms of expression. Rodchenko, Stepanova, Klutsis, Vatolina
