"Technologies of Revolution" is based on the 1960-1970s painting on canvas bottom layer. 1960-1970s painting is a post-war socialist realism copy painting produced at the Odessa Branch of the Artists' Union of the USSR Art Fund Combine. "Technologies of Revolution" was exhibited for the first time within the “ECCA "Tea Factory” curatorial project “Mausoleum Renaissance” in “Ya. Gretera” Gallery in Kiev in Ukraine, September 2012.
