Piter, locals name for the city, evoked Leningrad and emphasized the return to its historic, pre-revolutionary name 'Saint Petersburg' in 1991 during Glasnost and Perestroika. The exhibition included 10 large-scale prints, a video projection created from historic Soviet Union and American T.V. footage, and an interview with a Russian immigrant from Leningrad who relocated to Los Angeles in 1989. I selected radical Glasnost posters from the Wende Museum’s collection to juxtapose with my work.
