Location: New York
 
Proposed Session Title: Tomorrow, Yesterday
 
Session Description:
I would like to show a small collection of Soviet representations of the future mainly from the Space Race era, focusing on 1960’s and 1970’s science fiction, utopian literature and futuristic publications popular during that time, and compare it to a few American futuristic depictions of the period. I plan to concentrate mostly on visual representations as opposed to literary or narrative descriptions, predictions and forecasts.
