The twelfth Cold War Spaces lunchtime talk with New York-based Russian artist and researcher Yevgeniy Fiks and Joes Segal, the Wende Museum's Chief Curator and Director of Programming. They will discuss several of Fiks's Cold War-related art projects. These include a body of work around the Jewish autonomous Soviet region Birobidzhan near the Chinese border, a series of photographs under the fantastic title “Homosexuality is Stalin’s Atomic Bomb to Destroy America,” and the provocative international exhibition project “Monument to Cold War Victory.”
