A Man in the Time of Stalinist Repression
Graphics based on the documentation of the 1934 Writers' Congress

The artist explores human emotionality during one of the most terrible and tense periods of totalitarianism. These are the smiles of writers, poets, and literary critics of the Stalinist period from the parade chronicle of the Soviet press shortly before the mass repressions began.

"Like all history, my project, through episodes of personal biographies, addresses the contemporary viewer, his choices in the present moment, when the aggression of the imposed ideology becomes apparent" - Anna Neizvestnova.
