"Villa Sovietica introduces us to the material culture of everyday life in Soviet countries. After a visual essay-exploring various contexts in which ordinary Soviet objects appear-thirteen authors from different disciplines and academic traditions in the post-Soviet and Western worlds compare their points of view on aspects of materiality and spatiality, East-West relations, the history of the Soviet artefact, photography, memory and collecting, finally emphasising the complementarity between anthropology and art." The exhibition presented over 1000 items for everyday use of Soviet provenance. Volume is in very good condition, still in original illustrated wrap-around.
