“Revolution”, the exhibition
This project is intended to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution. The concept is based on real events. We are not striving for historical accuracy, and not calling on making the revolution happen again. The exhibition can only partly be called artistic, as the biggest part will be the humorous interpretation of historical (con)texts, which exist and don’t exist. We will try our best to present a picture of both the present and the future as it was imagined in the past. Our tools are the image, knowledge and a sense of humor. We are interested in whatever interpretations of 1917 Russian Revolution as well as of what any revolution is for.
Every day of the exhibition will be different from the previous and the next one, and every visitor will be involved in the process whether they want to be or not. The exhibition will consist of works of visual and non-visual art, as well as achievements of the Soviet and anti-Soviet culture.
