Art and Totalitarianism

Personal Freedom: Art and Totalitarianism is a space for conversation about human freedom, both external and internal, and will look at how creative people during Soviet times not only maintained their internal freedom, but helped their listeners and observers attain to that same freedom.


  • An “Excursion” into the creative workshops of the artist, the composer and the film producer introducing us to the creativity of people for whom freedom is related to Christian values. Our guides on the excursion will be scholar of Art Alexandr Kopirovsky, specialist in the field of music, A. Tavrizyan, and others.
  • A discussion on Creativity as man’s Justification.

The Soviet period is generally understood as both more creative and more creatively productive than our modern period. Is this really the case? Does art today give us a basis to hope for the rebirth of personal freedom and an exit from the anthropological catastrophe of the 20th century?

Discussion leader: Scholar of Art and SFI Professor, Alexandr Kopirovsky.
