Art and Communism: Soviet Posters Against Racism and War

The visionary propaganda of the USSR's skilled artists upheld social equality in contrast to racial hatred, colonialism and imperialism.

The Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 ushered in the world's first socialist state. Encompassing one-sixth of the world, the Soviet Union sought in its early days to bring about a global revolution against capitalism and imperialism, and openly declared its opposition to colonialism, racism and exploitation.

In order to advance toward the goal of world revolution, agitational propaganda, or agitprop was deployed as a means of conveying Marxist theory to the workers and oppressed of the world. Entire departments and agencies produced posters, cinema, poetry, music and literature for this purpose, and life in the socialist state was permeated with the striking motifs of agitprop artwork.

teleSUR takes a look at the iconic political posters of visionary Soviet artist and propagandist, Viktor B. Koretsky.
