Homage to Vera Mukhina, 1980. Performance
György Galántai’s performance with G. A. Cavellini and Julia Klaniczay expresses criticism through the deconstruction and reinterpretation of the Vera Mukhina statue, a symbol of the Soviet Union’s cultural hegemony. The three-hour-long action – the location of which was deliberately chosen to be the most symbolically important square, in a military, political and cultural historical sense – openly propagated the internationality and universality of artistic values and the freedom of art.
