The New Babylon, 1929. The New Babylon (Russian: Новый Вавилон) is a 1929 silent historical drama film written and directed by #GrigoriKozintsev and #LeonidTrauberg . The film deals with the 1871 #ParisCommune and the events leading to it, and follows the encounter and tragic fate of two lovers separated by the barricades of the #Commune . Composer #DmitriShostakovich wrote his first film score for this movie. In the fifth reel of the score he quotes the revolutionary anthem, "La Marseillaise" (representing the Commune), juxtaposed contrapuntally with the famous "Can-can" from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld. Footage from The New Babylon was included in Guy Debord's feature film #TheSocietyoftheSpectacle (1973). Kozintsev and Trauberg found some of their inspiration in #KarlMarx 's The Civil War in France and The Class Struggle in France, 1848-50. #sovietcinema #sovietmovie #sovietfilm #sovietunion #soviet #ussr #cccp #russiancinema #russianmovie #russianfilm #russia #cinema #movie #film #cultfilm #cultmovie #cinematography #photography #propaganda #socialistrealism #socialism #communism

АРХИВ: внутренний двор Ленинского мемориала, 1970-е гг.
Yervand Kochar’s delightfully kitschy ensemble statue ‘Labourer and Collective farm worker’ (1956), was hidden from the unsuspecting eyes of Yerevan’s inhabitants for much of its life in the courtyard of the ‘book palace’. It was restored and relocated to a more visible spot next to the State Drama Theatre so that it can be better admired and vandalized. Some idiot has given the woman a moustache- which is kind of appropriate considering that Kochar himself constantly played with sexually subversive subtexts in his public monuments. I love how he has undermined the propagandistic rhetoric of Soviet agricultural emancipation with this utterly bizarre compositional solution and tellingly placed details. The mirroring figures could be read as yet another riff on the theme of human sexual duality and fluidity - a constant leitmotif in Kochar’s work. So, #dontunderestimatesocialistrealism #armenianart #sovietart #socialistrealism #yervandkochar #sovietstatues #publicstatue

Картина А.М.Ратникова "Шефы" с выставки 52г. на листе из какого-то неизвестного журнала, стих - из N1 Мурзилки 50г. Двойной эксклюзив, поскольку ни того, ни другого нет в интернете - ЗИМА - Январь. Давно пришла зима И снегом замела дома, Покрыла льдом просторный пруд, Где карпы и ерши живут. Теперь и вечером, и днем Коньки ребят скользят на нем. Вчера мой лучший друг Борис Взял на сто метров первый приз. Но если от души сказать, Он мог свободно приз не взять. Мы рядом шли - я дал рывок, Но вдруг упал - подвел конек. Нет. Я не плакал. Кто сказал? Мне просто снег попал в глаза. Мне просто... В общем, в выходной На лыжах первенство за мной! - Виктор Гончаров - P.S. Ратникова в том журнале Ратниковой обозвали. Подозреваю, что и название картины могли перепутать.

Анатолий Руткин «В ночном». 1964 год. Холст, масло. 🇬🇧Anatoly Rutkin "In the night". 1964 Canvas, oil. 🚩Руткин Анатолий Львович, 1930 года рождения. Живописец, член Союза художников СССР. В последние годы своей деятельности Владимир Ильич часто искал отдыха от непрерывной работы на охоте. Что он главным образом ценил при этом, лучше всего явствует из его собственных слов, брошенных ненароком во время одной из охот. — Самое хорошее, — сказал он, — это то, что вот за целых два дня не было ни одного телефонного звонка, ни одной записки, ни одного вопроса. 🇬🇧Anatoly Rutkin, born in 1930. Painter, member of the Union of Artists of the USSR. In the last years of his activity, Vladimir Ilyich often sought rest from uninterrupted work on the hunt. What he mainly valued at the same time, is best of all evident from his own words, abandoned by chance during one of the hunts. “The best part,” he said, “is that for the whole two days there was not a single phone call, not a single note, not a single question.” 📌 #Ленин #лениниана #лениниана_арт #Lenin #leniniana_art #советскоеискусство #русскаяживопись #советскаяживопись #портрет #соцреализм #realism #art #соцарт #russianart #socialistrealism #sovietart #art_gallery #картина #живопись #АнатолийРуткин #AnatolyRutkin

Mural of Yuri Gagarin on Prospekt Nesavisimosti. Minsk, Belarus (2017)
“Man, the Measure of All Things” is another stunning mural created by the artist Walter Womacka. The work was seen on the now demolished building of the GDR’s Ministry of Construction up until 2010. Fortunately, the six-story art piece, made of enameled copper sheets, was dismantled, reassembled and once again displayed to the public on the residential building complex at Friedrichsgracht.

Saint Christopher Carries the Christ (scorpians). Original Art work. Mixed media. In Medieval Legend the Cannites, St Christopher among them, were litterally you, dog headed giant men. As Saint Christopher carried the infant Christ across the water the infant Jesus magically became heavier and heavier nearly drowning them, but Saint Christopher had the faith to continue across, which is why the Christ here is depicted as a stylized Scorpion, as per the Scorpion and the 🦊. #socialistrealism #artbrut #outsiderart #outsiderartist #eternalyouth軽井沢 #neoexpressionism #maximalism #folkart #christianart #christianartists #athleisureartists #athleisure #mixedmedia #sharpieart #crayonart #paintmarkers #easternorthodox #medievale #newweirdamerica #occidentalism #oldwest

El hombre en el cruce de caminos (Man at the Crossroads) is a famous work of art by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. Originally the work was commissioned to sit in the Rockefeller Center but the controversial inclusion of communist imagery, including Soviet Premier Lenin, resulted in its removal and attempted destruction. In his art Rivera shows varying ideologies such as rich vs. poor, workers vs. owners, technology, industry and agriculture and the clash between Fascist brutality and the hope of Communist Utopia. Today it sits as part of a collection of muralist paintings in Mexico City's Palace of Fine Arts as an exceptional example of the country's artistic works. #bellasartes #palaciodebellasartes #mexicocity #cdmx #arte #muralismo #muralism #mexico #travelmexico #art #weirdthingsweirdplaces #atlasobscura #socialistrealism #communism #socialism #worldrevolution #diegorivera #mexicanart #weirdtravel #aroundtheworld #lenin

Heart of a Dog, 1988. Heart of a Dog is a black-and-white 1988 Soviet television film directed by #VladimirBortko . It is based on #MikhailBulgakov 's novel #HeartofaDog . Attention spoilers! The film is set in #Moscow not long after the #OctoberRevolution where a complaining stray dog looks for food and shelter. A well-off, well-known surgeon Phillip Phillippovich Preobrazhensky happens to need a dog and lures the animal to his big home annex practice with a piece of sausage. The dog is named Sharik and well taken care of by the doctor's maids, but still wonders why he is there. He finds out too late he is needed as a test animal: the doctor implants a pituitary gland and testicles of a recently deceased alcoholic and petty criminal Klim Chugunkin into Sharik. Sharik proceeds to become more and more human during the next days. After his transition to human is complete, it turns out that he inherited all the negative traits of the donor - bad manners, aggressiveness, use of profanity, heavy drinking - but still hates cats. He picks for himself the absurd name Poligraf Poligrafovich Sharikov, starts working at the "Moscow Cleansing Department responsible for eliminating vagrant quadrupeds (cats, etc.)" and associating with revolutionaries, who plot to drive Preobrazhensky out of his big apartment. Eventually he turns the life in the professor's house into a nightmare by stealing money, breaking his furniture, a water ballet during a cat chase and blackmailing into marriage a girl he met at the cinema. The professor with his assistant are then urged to reverse the procedure. Sharikov turns back into a dog. As Sharik he does remember little about what has happened to him but isn't much concerned about that. To his content he is left to live in the professor's apartment. #sovietcinema #sovietmovie #sovietfilm #sovietunion #soviet #ussr #cccp #russiancinema #russianmovie #russianfilm #russia #cinema #movie #film #cultfilm #cultmovie #cinematography #photography #propaganda #socialistrealism #socialism #communism

Passing by Alexanderplatz, it’s impossible to ignore this stunning mural “wrapping” the House of the Teachers, once home to the former East German ministry of education. Designed by Walter Womacka, the monumental frieze “Our Life” set a new trend in architectural art in the GDR. Check the link in bio for more astonishing Socialist realist murals in East Berlin!

Zum 100. Todestag (gestern) von Rosa Luxemburg und Karl Liebknecht 🌹 Das Karl Liebknecht Forum (1980, Kurt-Hermann Kühn) im Neuen Lustgarten erinnert u.a. an die Ermordung der beiden Revolutionäre.
Анатолий Наседкин. «В дни Октября». 1969 – 1970. Холст, масло. Картина находилась в Луганском областном художественном музее. 🇬🇧Anatoly Nasedkin. "In the days of October." 1969 - 1970. Oil on canvas. The picture was in the Lugansk Regional Art Museum. 🚩 Когда Анатолий Леонидович задумал картину «В дни Октября», в мемуарной литературе он прочитал, что в напряженные дни Октябрьской революции, когда Ленин был в самом центре потрясающих мир событий, он иногда под вечер покидал свой кабинет и выходил к ступенькам Смольного немного отдохнуть, потолковать с красноармейцами, послушать их песни. Один из таких моментов и запечатлел художник. Работа над картиной длилась более двух лет: поездка в Ленинград на этюды, поиск типажей, колористического решения полотна. В камерной сценке художник стремился передать "отзвук" событий, на фоне которых она происходит. Поначалу Наседкин в красноармейце, которого слушает Ленин, видел уже ставшего привычным "человека с ружьем" - пожилого, немало повидавшего на своем веку солдата. Но впоследствии он пришел к убеждению, что рядом с вождем должен находиться молодой человек, которому предстоит продолжать революцию - и в схватках гражданской войны, и на стройках первых пятилеток. "Двенадцать лет я прожил в прошлом веке и хорошо помню дни Октября, - писал посетитель одной из выставок пенсионер Григоренко. - Вам удалось выразить дух, ветер того времени. У картины такая достоверность, что кажется это я, 29-летний, читаю Ленину письмо из дома". 📌 #Ленин #лениниана #лениниана_арт #Lenin #leniniana_art #советскоеискусство #русскаяживопись #советскаяживопись #портрет #соцреализм #realism #art #соцарт #russianart #socialistrealism #sovietart #картина #живопись #рисование #АнатолийНаседкин #AnatolyNasedkin
Join us for Angelina Lucento's talk "Painting against Empire: Béla Uitz and the Birth of Internationalist Socialist Realism" This lecture describes Béla Uitz’s influence on the development of Soviet Socialist Realist art. It first offers a brief history of Uitz’s life and work as he went from being a key member of the interwar Hungarian avant-garde, first in Budapest and then in Vienna, to a prominent Soviet realist painter and art’s administrator. The lecture then describes how Uitz developed his unique theory of internationalist Socialist Realism within the context of the International Bureau of Revolutionary Artists (MBRKh), a Soviet cultural-exchange organization he co-founded with the Ukrainian painter Anton Komashka in 1930, and shows specifically how this theory of impacted the definition of Socialist Realism as the official style of Soviet visual art between 1930-37. In so doing, a offer the first insights into the ways in which ideas about national form influenced the development of Socialist Realist art and begin to describe the style’s complex and precarious position as a component of both the symbolic violence of the Stalinist Terror and the Soviet anti-fascist campaign against Nazi Germany. Angelina Lucento received her Ph.D. in art history from Northwestern University. She focuses her research efforts on the material and cultural histories of painting and photography in the global context and the far-reaching, cultural-historical consequences of the Russian Revolution and the Second World War. Lucento is currently an assistant professor of history and art history at the National Research University-Higher School of Economics in Moscow, where she is completing her first book Moving the Masses: Painting and Communication from Budapest to Bishkek, 1918-1941. Her work has been published in Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema, Cahiers du Monde russe, Performance Research, CAA.reviews, and ArtGuide. #belauitz #socialistrealism #socialistrealismart #painting #avantgarde #hungarianpainting #proletarianrealism #ussr
