Yuri Slezkine Distinguished Lecture in European History

When I was asked to design the poster for Yuri Slezkine’s lecture on “The Life and Death of the Russian Revolution” using a stark black and white photo of an apartment building that would form a central theme in his lecture, I was drawn to text and graphics that would complement the contrast of the image. It may be a little too on the nose, but the blacked out (redacted) black background for the white typewriter-style text seemed to capture Sovietness in some way.
