Learning Objectives

The course aims to introduce students to the Russian-Soviet visual culture of the Stalin period.

What is there to see and what needs to be seen during the Stalin years in the USSR? Ideas and ideologies relating to vision and their materialisation in concrete forms will be analysed through the presentation and examination of the various fields of figuration, such as architecture, painting, graphics, the political manifesto, cinema, mass demonstrations, as well as objects related to the everyday life of the Soviet citizen.

The course aims to enable students to express what they have learnt in an effective and argued manner.

Program

- Methodology of Visual Culture

- Russian and Soviet visual iconography and culture: tradition and revolution

- Soviet cultural mythologies

- Morphology of real socialism: monuments, paintings, posters, slogans, films, documentaries, public events, private objects
