PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST
#3 2016 (52)
In his career as an official Soviet artist, Anatoly Moseichuk (1942-2013) was the creator of architectural landmarks with a prominent decorative element, from stations of the Moscow metro to the Ho Chi Minh Museum in Hanoi. Such was his creative activity in the real world, his engagement with the realities of life as it was then.
* I deliberately put this article's title - derived from the 1970 German film by Harald Reinl, "Erinnerungen an die Zukunft" - in quotation marks: its absurdity fits supremely well with the direction of Moseichuk's artistic epiphany. M.L.
