Modernism will end in decay.



Komar and Melamid : Artists
Painting in the USSR, Komar and Melamid produced some works which depict imagined future ruins of iconic works of modern architecture, such as Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum, and Eero Saarinen's Kennedy and Dulles airports. The paintings subvert both the Soviet Realist style (in that they are not depicting scenes of Soviet life, but dystopic symbols of the West) as well as suggest a future ideology or aesthetic beyond Modernism.
Examples of Sots Art ('Socialist Art' - a reaction against the official aesthetic doctrine of the state, Soviet Realism). When the paintings were made, neither artist had seen these buildings in person nor visited the States.
