Follow

Yevgeniy Fiks is known for creating works that, in his own words, re-examine the Soviet experience though the “lens of the left side of politics.” Fiks removes images from their original context and, consequently, from the bias of their creators, often using popular symbols and imagery to examine how Soviet culture has been portrayed both from within and by the West. In Songs of Russia #10 (2005), he painted a black-and-white picture recalling classic American films in which Russians were frequently stereotyped; the trademark of the global American Film Distributor MGM is added to “brand” the picture. Fiks is open with his criticism of both Socialist and Western Governments, and he has described his work as a reaction to the “collective amnesia” in the post-Soviet space and the “repression of history” he identifies in the American Left.
