>>16956 Anti-modernist Marxists are an embarrassment to their creed.
>>16961 Middle one is my absolute favorite.
>>16955 Wtf? Bernie Sanders was in the Soviet Union?!
>>16960 >creed marxism isn't a religion. Also why should marxists just accept bourgeois modernist ideology anyways? glow harder
I have really come to appreciate socialist realism, it has produced some unique, unparalleled art that transports real messages. Its not just all Stalin forever.
>>16967 Idem, thi shit is meaningful. It has an inherent positivity off the chart, is like the anti doom for me.
>>16966 Why should Marxists accept conservative notions of art? It's as much bourgeois ideology as Modernism if not more.
>>16967 I don't like socialist realist art personally, but there is definitely some really good shit in there mixed with the not so good shit
Not sure if this one counts,but I thought it looks really cool
>>16956 Picasso was a comrade though. He also did do realist paintings.
How about some ballet, comrades? Soviet army troops listened to this on the radio in December 1942, when its first performance aired (performed in Perm in the Urals), and as German troops were surrounded at Stalingrad. The composer, Aram Khachaturian, was Armenian and the ballet centers on a collective farm with emphasis on its ethnic diversity. IT FUCKING OWNS https://youtu.be/_JlGS1m1PL4

>>16979 That first pic is so beautiful and haunting to me. A chilling reminder that the struggle will transcend and live on through even our own deaths. In a way our fallen comrades past hand the spear and the rifle down through the ages and the rotations of the Earth to those of us that still walk among the living. All those who fight will join our old friends in bone and dust, while our finest moments of proletarian struggle will live on forever crystallized in time. A humble shrine of worship to our human race. As so as we rest upon our sacred deeds, we hand the rifle down to the next generation of communists, to die a worthy death and join us in sanctimonious peace.

>>16956 Failing to distinguish modern from contemporary art is the quickest way anyone can out themselves as a philistine. Please, for the love of God, read an art history book. When it comes to Russian art, the decade following 1917 was in the hands of the Constructivists, who had much more interesting things to say about the "function" or "purpose" of art than any of the Socialist Realist painters that would come to replace them. I don't see how complaining about "abstract art and picasso" helps us formulate a critique of art as financial asset. Hell, if you actually wanted to talk about art—both in terms of labor and value, then the Constructivists would be a great starting point. >>16966 Because the early Soviet Union at its best was fundamentally a modernist project! Back then, it was certain high-ranking party members' insistence on maintaining a sense of "heritage" in the post-revolutionary "proletarian culture" that many artists themselves had deemed bourgeois and sought to reject. They failed, and so we got 30+ years of Socialist Realism under Stalin instead; it's just Neoclassicism draped in red. If you want an illustration of this degeneration, then compare Tatlin's Tower (1920) with Iofan's Palace of the Soviets (1932). The former represents world revolution, while the latter shows a revolution being put on hold. >>16967 As much I hate on it, I have to agree. I learned to appreciate it more by reading Boris Groys. Russian art critics always provide unique perspectives.

>>17667 You're not alone. Some Indonesian architects thought similarly in their re-imagination of it a couple years ago. >>17669 That would've been a pretty massive rollercoaster, lol. I always thought it looked more like a large telescope or artillery piece. Tatlin's Tower was also known as the "Monument to the Third International" and if built was meant to serve as their new headquarters, all the while rivaling other monuments to modernity such as the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty. It's hard to get a sense of scale because most architectural renders of it look like miniatures.
>>16964 Well yeah, he spent his honeymoon there
>>17682 Its certainly a weird design. I cant say I'm not interested though
