Lenin on tour

August 9, 2007

This is an old project (old, as in 3 years old), but that doesn´t make it less amazing. So in this case i´m going with: However old you are. Just be a good one. 🙂
I just love the idea of it. Three dismanteld busts (Lenin and two comrades) are put on a trailer and tour through Europe. As the organizer says:“I’m showing Lenin to my contemporaries. And the 21st century to Lenin. Who will explain it to him?”

I love the ironic, slightly melancholic (and secretly gloating) side of it. And personally, it makes me wonder what would happen if we gave this “opportunity” to other historical persons today.
