There’s a terrific exhibition of Russian film posters from the 1920s – actually, they’re Soviet film posters by people like the Stenberg brothers…These kinds of poster are often displayed at NYCs MoMA; but they are not often seen in London.
Grad is Gallery for Russian Art and Design. It’s in Little Portland Street by Oxford Circus.
Next Wednesday, there is a Q+A session with the curator, modernism expert Lutz Becker, and I’m on the panel. Also, there are film clips by Dziga Vartov and Eisenstein.
This is a poster for TurkSib (1929), a documentary about building part of the trans-Siberian railway.
I am a camera!
