#millenialmuseumblast Day 5: Emotion 👁 Museums are the memory of humanity. It’s also art’s role to remind us of a painful past. Maybe it thus pushes us in the right direction so we don’t make the same mistakes again. 👁 I went to Memento Park, on the outskirts of Budapest, to see the old Communist statues that were removed from the city following the regime change. 👁 It gave me chills! The whole park is pretty isolated, there weren’t a lot of visitors, the light was playing with the ominous statues and everything was so full of history it gave out a sense of imminent doom. 👁 Right outside the entrance of the park are a few dark underground galleries, where the statues that are not on display are kept. 👁 Seeing Lenin’s bust in the chiaroscuro (pic 4), in great condition, on a pile of vulgar wooden palletts, felt like this past wasn’t far away at all… even as if he were just waiting. 👁 I highly recommend going there if you’re ever in Hungary. Have you ever felt an uncomfortable feel when witnessing art? 👁 📷 Memento Park, Budapest, 2018.

After 2 months on donkey from Kiev I proudly present the #Slava Sekonda 31 jewel automatic. Founded in 1924 as the "Second Moscow Watch Factory" Slava automatics were used widely for both military and civilian use in the USSR. #watchesofinsta #russianwatch #communistera

Look at this #mindboggling upside down house in #Zakopane, Poland, where everything- tables, chairs and even bed and toilets are also put #upsidedown.

Follow the footsteps before they melt! They just might lead you to a fabulous Publishers Weekly review!! ⁣ ❄️❄️❄️⁣⁣ Congratulations goes out to @timothyjaysmith on his terrific PW review for THE FOURTH COURIER (Arcade Publishing, April 3, 2019): “Sharply draw. characters, rich dialogue, and a clever conclusion bode well for any sequel.” ⁣ 🚔🛢💸💣⁣ It is 1992 in Warsaw, Poland, and the communist era has just ended. A series of grisly murders suddenly becomes an international case when it's feared that the victims may have been couriers smuggling nuclear material out of the defunct Soviet Union. The FBI sends an agent to help with the investigation. When he learns that a Russian physicist who designed a portable atomic bomb has disappeared, the race is on to find him—and the bomb—before it ends up in the wrong hands. ⁣⁣ Smith’s depiction of post-cold war Poland is gloomily atmospheric and murky in a world where nothing is quite as it seems. Suspenseful, thrilling, and smart, The Fourth Courier brings together a straight white FBI agent and gay black CIA officer as they team up to uncover a gruesome plot involving murder, radioactive contraband, narcissistic government leaders, and unconscionable greed. ⁣ •⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ •⁣⁣ #mysterythriller #postcoldwar #coldwar #russia #poland #nuclear #chernobyl #gaywriters #gayauthors #thefourthcourier #timothyjaysmith #espionage #espionagethriller #alanfurst #fbi #tellmehowthisendswell #warsaw #warsawpoland #russian #communistera #suspense #paris #parisfrance #publishersweeklyreview #publishersweekly #kirkusreviews

Hold on please. This is worth visiting but I can be a little oppressive. Gives deep insights into the historical background of Albania and hard times in communism under which a lot of Albanians had to suffer. #bunkart #tiranabunker #hardtimes #albaniahistory #communistera

I am educated by this city-scape. Each wandering a masterclass in architecture & social history. From the fondant fancy pinks & blues of the Austro-Hungarian town houses to the brutalist experimental buildings of the Communist era. This is the Telephone Palace in Cluj, designed by architect Vasile Mitrea & built between 1964-68. #brutalism #architecture #building #communistera #urban #bnw #lookup #romania #ilovecluj

As “coaches” our goal is to gain and give proper knowledge. I’ve been working with master boxing coach @euro_school_of_boxing and I must say the knowledge I’ve gained in three weeks has been great. His style and boxing background is second to none. Hungarian junior champion back in the communist era when boxing was at its peak🙏🏽 A pleasure to be a student of such a great coach. #euroboxing @legendsgymsydney

Does anyone know what country/city this is in? Or maybe just the era/political climate of when it was constructed? If so, type your answer (best guess) in the comments below. ... If it’s any help, I didn’t plan to be go here. My flight ✈️ from LAX was delayed, so I missed my connecting flight and had to spend the night here. ... #history #trivia #geography #famousstatues #historicalplaces #regaltutors #theregaltutors #ohtheplacesyoullgo #historicaltrivia #travel #traveling

Many things are in this photo, but my favorite are the cheese grater like grates over the air conditioning units. These are on many of the #renovated #communistera buildings in #tirana #albanian

First photo is the national #magazine during the #communistera, the next two photos are of an #albanian #livingroom during this time, and are notable because all of the living rooms were identically furnished and decorated. #houseofleaves #museumofstatesurveillance #enverhoxha #sigurimi #tirana #albania

A little bit in love with this limited edition photo series from life in socialist Bulgaria. 📷 🙄 🇧🇬 @imaginaryarchive — Two boys timed-out in the familiar uniform setting of the communist living room. Parents’ preferred method of punishment at the time. 👉🏻 — • • • • • • • • • • • #momentsofmine #passionpassport #searchwondercollect #vscocam #vsco #searchwondercollect #mytinyatlas #vscobulgaria #vscoart #vscoartwork #vscobulgaria #instart #framing #historicalphotography #photography #blackandwhite #bnwphotography #timeslonggone #onceuponatime #communism #vscocommunism #communistpast #archivephotography #interiorphotography #artwork #artphotography #backinthedays #timeout #communistera #lifeasitoncewas

Recently dad has shown me pictures he had taken almost 40 years ago. As a beginner photographer, living in Warsaw, he had been taking part in mass protests against the communist government. No firearms were used that day. However, ZOMO didn't mind to use batons, tear gas grenades and water cannon trucks. People barricaded themselves in the old town, defending themselves with paving stones. Not so long ago. May, 1982. Warsaw. #prl #warsaw #communistera #protest #photography
