All about socialist realism
The project begins with a scientific book that explores socialist realism from a gender perspective as a trend in art that served not so much propaganda as a political myth for which socialism was recognized. Further research involves ethnographic interviews with women who entered adulthood in the times of socialist realism.
The book What gender is the female worker? explores the symbols of socialist realism, presenting its exact genesis in a mythical perspective. It proves that socialist realism, which was the apex of Soviet socialism, operated according to the same principles as a myth or a fairy tale.
Moreover, there is an attempt to define the meaning of gender opposition in the discussed trend – the role of not only a woman or an iconic worker, but also a man and an iconic worker – which was the axis of all socialist realism. In his original gender interpretation, he synthesizes these two aspects of the symbolism of socialism, basing it on the opposition of values: male-non-male, female-non-female.
The book is available in Polish.
