  • Catalogue Essay

    "Unlike the ‘Luriki’ series, the photographs Boris Mikhaylov has used for the ‘Sots Art’ series were not gleaned from the archives of anonymous amateur photographs, but were taken by Boris Mikhaylov himself. The subject matter has a primarily political and ideological connotation." (B. Kölle, Boris
    Michajlov, Stüttgart, 1995, p. 65)
