 Société RéalisteIn 2014, curators Yevgeniy Fiks and Stamatina Gregory organized the exhibition “Monument to Cold War Victory” in New York’s Cooper Union, the result of an international competition they initiated, inviting artists to reflect on the question why there is no monument to Cold War victory, and how such a monument might look like if it would exist. The submissions were judged by a team of high-ranking international artists, curators and scholars, among whom Susan Buck-Morss, Boris Groys, and Vitaly Komar. Fiks and Gregory are collaborating with The Wende Museum to present the second iteration of this exhibition, for which the participating artists will present works that reflect the context of Los Angeles. All of the artworks inspire reflection on the character of the Cold War and its topical meaning.
