The Office for a Democratic Belarus is pleased to present a travelling exhibition of the Belarusian poster art, entitled "Visual code of the time: post-Soviet poster art in Belarus", which provides comprehensive insight into a particular aspect of Belarusian history and culture of the late Soviet era. The display features the works of 16 outstanding representatives of poster art that have become symbols of the whole epoch. The main goal of the artists was to encourage the public to broaden their outlook, and to cast off the blinkers of traditional Soviet ideology. A number of posters presented in this exhibition won international contests.
The exposition will be available in the following galleries:
“Zoya”, Warsaw, October 7-21: Galeria ZOYA ul. Kopernika 32 m. 8 00-336 Warszawa . More information can be found at
“Für Fortgeschrittene”, Berlin, October 23-31 Schwedenstr.13 13359 Berlin
“Aquarium” Student Club, Dresden, November 5-30 CLUB AQUARIUM St. Petersburger 2101069 Dresden, map
The ODB should like to express its gratitude to all partner organisations who helped make this project possible, in particular the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the German Marshall Fund of the United States. We should also like to thank the galleries and institutions that agreed to host this exhibition.
In addition, we would like to extend our special thanks to the Belarusian Union of Designers who provided the posters for the exhibition free of charge.
