DISPLAY: After the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991, Russian artists who no longer felt defined by resistance to authority could reflect wistfully, ironically or polemically on utopian concepts like the Ideal City or the New Soviet Man. They also brought a fresh point of view to issues informing the western cultural conversation: architecture and urban living, rationally-planned versus informal settlements, the interplay of aesthetics and ideology, new technology and social change, national and other forms of identity, conflict and migration.

Our temporary displays complement our permanent collection; there are many free displays around the V&A. They range in size from a single case to a room.
