Sovfoto 20/20


2020, and its consonance with 20/20 vision, has long been a date that’s tied with futurity. Sovfoto 20/20 highlights the aesthetics of innovation as a means of demonstrating how artists and designers can be architects of the future. The photographs are from the Sovfoto Archive, a collection of 23,116 Soviet press prints from the Stalinist era. Inherently flawed as historical documents, these images nonetheless reveal how the future is continuously reimagined in the present moment.
