Don’t talk too much, russian poster of communism fear. During the Russian Revolution a movement was initiated to put all arts to service of the dictatorship of the proletariat. In search of new forms of expression, the Proletkult organisation was highly eclectic in its art forms. In practice it meant that artists had to produce works glorifying the leaders and policies of the Soviet Union. Art effectively became a form of propaganda.Posters and paintings works in Style later known as Socialist Realism sympathetic to the communist government include partisans, hammers,sicle, stars and industrial or agricultural landscapes were popular subjects, glorifying the achievements of the Soviet economy.Artists who could not work within the boundaries of Socialist Realism were send to the labor camps. Artists who chose to paint in alternative styles had to do so completely in private and were never able to exhibit or sell their work. (
