Historic monuments are re-created in 150 drawings, photographs and proposals by artists worldwide. Komar & Melamid -- 2 of the Soviet Union's most notorious artist-dissidents -- challenged artists from around the world to submit proposals to reinterpret the Socialist-Realist monuments of Russia's totalitarian past.
