Within global capitalism’s burgeoning atmosphere of sex and death, the Soviet Bloc’s communist societies nurtured devotion to encyclopaedias, museums, nineteenth-century novels, and popular science, as well as an official dedication to an atheistic, rational humanity. As such, this atmosphere turned out to be the twentieth century’s most sustained dissident public visual culture. Within this world, Viktor Koretsky’s art struggled to solve an enduring riddle: how to ensure or restore Communism’s moral health through the production of a distinctively Communist vision.
