Revolutionary Dreams — An evening with Charlotte Hobson
31st January 2019
In the years before the Russian Revolution, a fringe group of students and poets began making art together. The Futurists shocked their wealthy audiences with their crude, witty performances and their ambitious projects: Kiosks that talk to the peasants and educate them! Flying cities! Paper clothes! Collectivised underwear! And a time machine, to transport us all to the Communist future!
In this vividly illustrated talk the award winning writer and Russian expert Charlotte Hobson, author of the novel, The Vanishing Futurist, recalls the art and ideals of these absurdist revolutionaries.
“a rapturous, carnival-like ride into political disorder, heady romance and absurdity’ with ‘the reviving powers of a shot of Armenian brandy.” The Guardian
