Abstract:

In many ways, including artistic ones, Russia appears forever on the brink of revolution. This program examines Russian visual art as it progressed-or regressed, depending on one's opinion-during the 20th century. Host Andrew Graham-Dixon roots out portraits of Stalin stashed in museum storerooms, notes the transformation of the Moscow Metro into a public art gallery, and visits a stunning creation of postwar Communist rule: the Space Monument. He also looks at examples of Russian art today, from sculptures in liquid oil and the insides of a giant erotic apple to heroic sculptures of Vladimir Putin and a re-creation of the Imperial royal family facing the firing squad. A BBC Production.
