On the occasion of the centennial of the October Revolution we are exhibiting a selection of works from the Arteast 2000+ collection by artists from the former Soviet Union, whose art is based on the avant-garde traditions of “Red October.”
In 2007, three Slovenian artists joined the conservative Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) and officially changed their names to that of the leader of the party, the Prime Minister of Slovenia at the time, Janez Janša. While they renamed themselves for personal reasons, the boundaries between their lives and their art began to blur in numerous and unforeseen ways.
