Abstract:

Posters were vehicles of mass communication that set their mark on the country's streets and urban spaces. At the same time the poster genre became a key arena for the Russian avant-garde, which dreamed of an art that united form and function, the masses and the elite. The poster - "produced by the millions for the masses and posted on the streets - brings art to the people", proclaimed Vyacheslav Polonsky. In Norway, artists, advertisers, and political activists were inspired by the Soviet propaganda. This book brings together a broad selection of outstanding Russian poster art, from the constructivists' formal experiments to the socialist realism of the 1930s. It also includes some of the most important Norwegian posters inspired by Soviet posters. 0Exhibition: National Library, Oslo, Norway (28.2.-25.5.2013).
