About

In 1991 the USSR disintegrated and the Iron Curtain dropped to unveil progressive, multi-ethnic nations in Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus region, which were striving for democracy and individual identity. Since then, new models of cultural identity have replaced the monuments and doctrine of the forefathers of the Soviet and Communist ideology: Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin. Leading international artists Zeigam Azizov, Anastasia Khoroshilova, Dmitry Gutov and Koka Ramishvili discuss photography in relation to the quest for cultural identity in the post-Soviet environment in a session chaired by Viktor Misiano, independent curator and editor of Moscow Art Magazine.
