Плакат советского Востока, 1918-1940. Альбом-каталог
Soviet posters created in the interwar Soviet Orient are as ambiguous as the very time of a sharp social and cultural breakthrough and the emergence of a new society. They represent a huge, but still poorly understood, layer in the history of Soviet visual propaganda. Bearing in itself the artistic and advertising, information and agitation functions, taking into account the national mentality, these posters fully fulfilled their assigned role: attracted the attention and interest of the viewer, activated the perception, controlled the mass consciousness. Vivid figurative posters, resolved in the characteristic post-revolutionary time avant-garde constructivist manner, were created by professional artists who dreamed of the birth of a great national style.
