On 8th March 1917 in war-torn Petrograd, marches and demonstrations took place, devoted to the International Women’s Day. This became one of the first major sparks that ignited the fierce fire of the Russian Revolution.

In this talk, the art historian Dr Natalia Budanova will discuss how the changed role of women in the new post-revolutionary society influenced the work and creativity of female artists, as well as how the new ideal of femininity was reflected in early Soviet art.

The talk is followed by drinks reception.
