Event description

Description

This Exhibition is brought to you by members of the Photo Artists Union of Russia and the Creative Collective ‘Tasma’ in celebration of the October Revolution Centenary. This show illustrates lives of soviet people from various social backgrounds, how they worked, their everyday life, their education and culture. The photographs document celebrations of religious and national holidays and bear witness to the progress and accomplishments in the space industry. This project also looks at a multitude of various cultures in the soviet union, including the Tatars who bear close similarities to the Irish culture in music and pagan traditions such as Samhain. The authors avoid praising or criticizing their society. They convey joy and sorrow of the people who are bound by the imposed ideology of communism, while maintaining honesty in their unique style. Authors: Eduard Khakimov, Zufar Bashilov, Vladimer Zotov, Vlerii Michalov,Yuri Filmonov, Rifact Iacupov, Sultan Ishacov.
