Richard Pare at Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin Germany

Building the Revolution: Soviet Art and Architecture 1915-1935
April — July 2012
Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin Germany

Richard Pare’s photography from The Lost Vanguard (exhibited at Lumière in April of 2009), was on view at Martin Gropius Bau, in Berlin Germany, April 5 – July 9, 2012. For more specific information on this past exhibition, SELECT HERE.

The exhibition, Building The Revolution, came to Berlin directly from London’s Royal Academy of Art where it received numerous positive reviews; The Guardian, Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, London Review of Books, Evening Standard, Oxford Times, London Confidential, to name just a few, (Oct 2011 – Jan 2012).

This exhibition explored one of the most exceptional periods in the history of architecture, from the years just prior to the October Revolution until the foundation of the U.S.S.R. First shown in 2007 at The Museum of Modern Art (NY), this work is an important contribution to the history of both photography and architecture. The flamboyant age of Russian modernity, in the 15 years following the October 1917 Revolution, was hardly recognized before it came to an abrupt end. After the fall of the communist experiment in 1991, structures employing modernist era design and construction methods were rapidly disappearing. In a short period of time nearly a quarter of the buildings that were to have been protected were razed or disfigured. Richard Pare, a master photographer and curator of architectural photography, developed this body of work to record these interior and exterior designs before they succumbed to redevelopment.

“Richard Pare’s (work) opens windows onto the substantially unknown architectural manifestations of a period characterized by unprecedented artistic, social and cultural flights of imagination.” – Phyllis Lambert, Founding Director, Canadian Centre for Architecture

Shown here are two images by photographer Al Clayton. The first is a portrait of Cash taken on the set of the Johnny Cash show in Nashville and the second is an image from 1969 at the Cummins Prison in Arkansas.
