    Default Soviet Murals And Propaganda - (East) Germany


    It would seem that I have replaced one obsession (asylums) with another (Soviet/DDR military).

    Have been out the the former East Germany 3 times this year with King Rat and on my last trip out realised what I like the most is the soviet style murals and propaganda the best ... so here is a collection of them all put together, in no particular order

    Just wow!
    Thanks for putting these together, I love soviet iconography. Fave of these has to be the red star cast into the concrete wall, just sums it all up so well.

    I was just thinking about how I'm not sure I would react or feel being surrounded by such invasive and oppressive propoganda had I lived in the DDR or USSR, but then I thought about Channel4 and TV advertising and realised that I already am... hahaha.

    Wow, these really are fantastic Lilli. Soviet iconography has always fascinated me too, and I own a humungous poster-sized book full of soviet poster art...but seeing yours in situ is a million times better. Fab pics.

    Cool! Nice photography too.

    Here's one to add to your collection - I heard it described I think as, "Tuna can decoration"!

    I don't think I'll ever get over the amount of tins, shoes and dead mice the soviets re-inforced their concrete with !
