SOVIET ART: REVOLUTION
& PROPAGANDA Speaker Jane Angelini
The start of the 20th century Russia was an exciting time for artists, abuzz with new ideas and a sense of freedom. There was a dynamism which broke free from the old confines, grasping the possibilities of technology, female empowerment and modernity.
However this optimism was challenged after the revolution and progressive young artists began to propagandise revolutionary virtues. The communist ideal was that art must serve the needs of the party and state for the good of all.

150 YEARS OF DESIGNING THE UNDERGROUND Speaker Mark Ovendon
This covers surprising attempts to create some graphic unity, even in the 1860s and 70s expansion of the Underground and the need to create some cohesion between the different companies, each bringing very different architectural ideas. We look at the various influences of the Arts and Crafts movement, Streamline Moderne/Art Deco, post war and austerity, recent schemes and future works.
