Building the Revolution: Soviet Art and Architecture 1915-1935

To the Royal Academy to see Building the Revolution: Soviet Art and Architecture 1915-1935, a small but powerful exhibition of constructivist and suprematist paintings, and photos of avant-garde architecture from the heroic era following the Russian revolution. What makes the exhibition special is that all the original architectural diagrams and photos are accompanied by contemporary photos taken over the past 15 years by Richard Pare, which show these astonishingly innovative buildings now crumbling and decaying, neglected, empty and unloved, like the forgotten Soviet ideology which moulded Russia – and the world – for 70 years.
