Liljevalchs’ major autumn exhibition is an in-depth study of the Soviet Union of the 1920s. We will be presenting film and propaganda posters from a unique Japanese collection, produced during the brutal regimes of Lenin and Stalin by some of the foremost Soviet artists.
During a few years after the revolution, before social realist aesthetics became mandatory and the Great Terror started, Soviet poster art was probably the best on the planet and has been an influence (or, often, the influence) for generations of graphic designers ever since.
