Soviet Propaganda Art

This exhibition contains the poster collection of Samvel Baghdasaryan'a, the works of Baghdasaryan, and the documentary photographs of his student, artist Armine Hovhannisyan. The collection features images of Lenin, Brezhnev, Khrushchev and Stalin, and includes propaganda posters produced during the Soviet Union era. The exhibition also featurs unique voice recordings of Brezhnev, Lenin, Stalin and Khrushchev. The exhibition travelled from Yerevan to Istanbul, and reflects the silent but effective dialogue between the two countries that has blossomed recently via art and artists, and has succeded in remaining outside the orientation of centres of political power.

Dedicated to the memory of Hrant Dink, the exhibition was realized in collaboration by Anadolu Kültür and SODEV.
