On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, the exhibition “Storming of the Winter Palace: History as Theater” curated by Sylvia Sasse and Inke Arns is dedicated to the photograph, which more than any other, has become the symbol of this revolution: the Storming of the Winter Palace. However, the photo does not stem from the historic event itself, but from a theatrical reenactment, which was executed by the theater director Nikolai Evreinov in 1920.
The exhibition presents film footage and photographs of the reenactment of 1920 as well as the photo’s process of becoming a document in the writing of Soviet history, in picture and school books, and on posters.
