Time Is on the Side of Communism

With my work I am recounting the history of possibilities and hopes. I would like to believe it is a unique form of history of the future that emerges from the mistakes of the past and present. In my project, a few threads structure the narrative: the declamatory images of female identity borrowed from Soviet books about shock-workers, home photos of schoolchildren found on the Internet, and bits of old Soviet furniture. I think Utopia is a ceaseless construction of the future, and there are no stops along the way. As I see it, today’s construction site is the everyday formation of subjectivity.
This project is a small sketch of this endless process.
