by BWW News Desk - Jan 22, 2016

New Brunswick, NJ—January 19, 2016—On March 12, the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers will open Dreamworlds and Catastrophes, an exhibition exploring Soviet artists' engagement with science, technology, and design at the height of the Cold War. The artists featured in the exhibition captured the duality of the intense geopolitical circumstances and the sense of hopeful possibility created by technological advancement in Soviet military and space technologies. Works in the exhibition range from documentary photography, which memorialized scientific achievements and their influence on everyday life, to surrealistic abstractions that encapsulated the sense of a rapidly changing world, to kinetic sculptures that incorporated new technologies. Although created in the Cold War era of the 1960s to the1980s, these works have a renewed relevance and immediacy as current global events have reignited American and Western European tensions with Russia.
