Russian Life Magazine Reports: Ideology Returns to Russian Art
I just finished reading the Jan/Feb '09 issue of Russian life magazine which contained an interesting article of several pages titled "Ideology Returns to Russian Art"
In brief, the article says that the Russian Art community was under high pressure during Soviet days, a new ear started in 90's where free art products were generated. The article claims there is a turn-back these days, state is funding movie projects and trying to publish movies which support govertment ideas like the old Soviet times. One example to this was the dull movie: A Kiss- Not For The Press which I reviewed shortly here before.
