In this lecture, Dr. Annie Gérin will explore the uses of satire in the visual arts, theatre, cinema, and the circus under Lenin and Stalin. By examining the texts written by Anatoly Lunacharsky, Dr. Gérin will show that satire's use in official Soviet art and propaganda was neither marginal nor untheorized. Instead, it offered an array of artists the means to critically examine the past as well as subjects, themes and practices that arose in the 1920s and 1930s.
