Why have dictators’ statues always been controversial? Why are Ukrainian people so keen to topple Lenin’s statues? Dictators have used statues and monuments as their propagandistic tool. Moreover, people see not only utopia but also dystopia through the simulacrums of dictators.
This project, "Decoding the Statues of Dictators” is an attempt to find the rules which are shaping the dictators’ statues.
