The centenary of the 1917 Russian Revolution: reflection on arts, history and legacy | Institute of Continuing Education skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education

This course will offer a rare opportunity to explore some new insights and attempts to interpret historical facts about the Russian Revolution of 1917. Recent centenary commemorations have offered some unique insights into both historical and artistic aspects of this momentous event in modern world history. Once 1917 ended centuries of Tsarist rule, creativity was set to roam free and artistic possibilities in all areas seemed endless. We will look into the artistic landscape of the era and reflect on some works of Kandinsky, Chagal, Malevich, Tatlin, Petrov-Vodkin, Rodchenko and other less known artists and designers. The course will be conducted mostly in English, with some commentary on the Russian language. Some knowledge of Russian would be beneficial but is not a prerequisite.
