Nikolai Troshin. URSS en construcción, nº 7, 1938

“Around 1933 the editors’ interest in reaching the foreign trade and political community was eclipsed by efforts to cater to the Soviet political and managerial elite. Correlation of this shift with the chronology of the work of prominent avant-garde artists on the magazine reveals that these individuals began to contribute to SSSR na stroike [URSS in Construction] around the time that the Soviet elite emerged as the paramount ideal audience (…) Constructivist photomontage was deployed to create a fantasy image of the new Societ state for consumption of the new Stalinist elite. The photomontage essays published in SSSR na stroike affirmed the new elte’s achievements in the construction of socialism in the Soviet Union.”
