The October Revolution

November 8, 2017

The October Revolution in 2017 ushered in a new era of experimentation in art. In 1918 the Russian Soviet Republic was the first state in the world to officially support the avant-garde.

Fired by the revolution’s socialist ideology, artists rejected the Tsarist regime’s traditional and conservative approach to art. The Bolsheviks embraced pluralist cultural policies. This encouraged experimentation and the incorporation of industrial forms into art, design, architecture and film. It was modern. This explosion of ideas in art was eventually crushed by the oppressive dead hand of a Stalinist dictatorship.
