“Propaganda poster” 2013

The series “Propaganda Poster” reconsiders the language of propaganda of Soviet poster art from the 1920-50’s by merging it with images of post-Soviet erotica. The ideology-laden graphics and text of constructivism float above the ghostly female nudes creating new atemporal narratives. Simultaneously trading in irony, sexuality, and violence these photographs become a new kind of advertising, breathing new meanings into the body – the imaginary ideological one of the past and the exploited physical one of the present.
