Lenin, Stalin and music
The layout concept of the first sequence is an attempt to represent the artistic and creative abundance of the period by setting up a landscaping device blending the idea of a forest of luminous tree trunks with a series of wooden houses called “Dachas”, scattered over the entire area. The spatial concept of the second sequence has a dual nature. There are two distinct areas. The first part of the visit, “the Soviet ideal”, is a long solemn corridor directed towards a large projection representing propaganda in praise of Stalin. Two long walls stand on either side of this space. They orient and lead the visitor towards the “supreme leader”. Here music is played.
In the second part, the visitor sees what had been kept hidden from view in three rooms that evoke the darker background of the Stalinist period.
