The exhibition features works by sculptors from the collection of the State Museum of Contemporary History of Russia.
In the age of information technology and high-tech workflows, there are fewer and fewer professions in which human physical labor is involved. However, this was not always the case, and half a century ago sculptors and artists addressed the theme of labor in its physical beauty. However, the industrialization of the first half of the twentieth century often made a man just a continuation of the machine, its detail - albeit an important one. The subjects of easel paintings by Yuri Pimenov, Alexander Samokhvalov and Alexander Deineka erased the boundaries between the human and the machine: the god of the machine dictated the aesthetic of daily labor.
