(UK) Red Star Over Russa—A Revolution In Visual Culture

In light of Armando Iannucci’s new film The Death of Stalin, which brings a certain level of humour to all that surrounded Stalin, comes Tate’s Red Star Over Russia exhibition.

It’s been a hundred years exactly since Red October – which marked the beginning of Communism in the 20th century. But out of sheer desperation, creativity will always breed.

Graphic Designer and photographer David King managed to get hands on over 250,000 items from this period – ranging from propaganda posters, prints and photographs. Russian design is very stark and still so relevant, with the Constructvisim philosophy at the very forefront of the revolution. You’ll find work from artists such as El Lissitzky, Dmitri Moor and Nina Vatolina.

The exhibition opens on 8th November 2017 and will run until 18th February 2018, at Tate Modern.
