The Fall of the Mighty: Iconoclastic Vandalism in Post-Soviet States, by E L Peirce

This poster discusses the iconoclastic aspect of vandalism, especially pertaining to the evolution of political regimes.  What happens to symbolic objects after they fall from grace and how can we preserve them? Both the physical destruction of statues and the creation of statue parks (which destroys the context of the object) are discussed.

Target Audience

Conservators in areas of severe political change, such as the Middle East or North Africa where there are frequent changes in regime.
