Spectres of Communism of Avant-Garde Architecture of Leningrad 1925-1935

10.00

These twelve pieces of avant-garde architecture of Leningrad reflect an entire epoch. In these buildings, the history of the nation and the history of the city intertwine with the threads of real people’s lives. Born of the short period between the Civil War and the rise of Stalin’s empire, this was a most fruitful time in the field of advanced urban development. Colossal social change was implemented with the help of revolutionary art - art that stimulated many global artistic trends, and is still considered to be the most important Russian contribution to the History of World Art. A historical note can be found at the backside of each image, with an extended text on the development of soviet architectural avant-garde inside.
