A specialist in post-revolutionary Russian photography, Aglaya Glebova is completing a monograph on the late work of Alexander Rodchenko, specifically his documentation of the White Sea Baltic Canal construction site (1931-1933), one of the first Soviet forced-labor camps. In her Academy project, “Mobile Modernisms: The Last Projects of the Soviet Avant-garde, 1928-1937,” Glebova examines five iconic yet little studied projects completed by Soviet avant-garde artists in the decade following Stalin’s rise to power.
