I found this video about the abandoned house of the Bulgarian Communist Party in Bulgaria. I talket about it in the last jurnal entry. It's in the second half of the video.
First and foremost I would like to say two things about the group. "Socialist Realism" is first of all an art movement. So the group mainly deals with art. We do not want to become another one ideological group. there are many already. Although the issue itself, embodies the ideology. however, we would want primarily to investigate the impact of this ideology in art. The influence on art over the years, but also the modern expression of it, through the works of art that exists in the DA.
The truth is that unfortunately, recent history of art, written by the (temporary) winners. Art historians and fine arts schools around the world, teach that socialist realism was and is a decadent and outmoded art. which in reality is not true! is unscientific to condemn so simply an entire artistic movement. Moreover all the artistic movements throughout the centuries, had good, and bad art samples. And also, art historians and art schools, are hypocrites when they say all this, and at the same time believe that ¨ "everything is art". We would love to show them how wrong they are! We would want this group to stimulate the socialist realism and put it in today!
Well, since much has been said about what the "socialist realism" realy is, please note that definition we give:
The group focuses on ART that highlights the people's struggle for liberation from the exploitation of the bourgeoisie. And the prospect for socialism-communism. The opportunity to live the mankind a better future
>All kinds of art are acceptable (comics, 3d, animation,etc). Because the "realism" in the "socialist realism" refers to the perception of reality and not the naturalism of the form
>Portraits of personalities will not be accepted. Βecause the portraits are just ... portraits. they dont agree whith the above definition of socialist realism.
>we also accept photos of other artwork of famous artists, from monuments, sculptures ... that belongs to socialist realism.
>we would not accept artwork with militaristic or violent content. Unless it has historical subject.
