CENTRAL ASIA IN ART: From Soviet Orientalism to the New Republics
In the midst of the space race and nuclear age, Soviet Realist artists were producing oil figurative paintings. Why? How was art produced to control and co-opt the peripheries of the Soviet Union, particularly Central Asia? These questions are at the center of this study, evaluating and exploring the formation of national identity in a Soviet and post-Soviet world. Illustrated in color.
