"Mexico 1968" Mug



Sports in the USSR were considered an ideological weapon. Soviet athletes, defending the honor of the country in international competitions, at the same time defended its ideology. The breeding of a new type of person was one of the tasks that communism had set for itself. Sports had taken root among the general public, and that was how it was supposed that the superiority of the Soviet person over others would be demonstrated. 


About the collection:

2017 marks 100 years since the Russian Revolution. The New York Times has dubbed these 100 years “The Red Century”, and is publishing a series of articles on the theme of communism. The history of this Red Century is most convincingly illustrated by the images on Soviet stamps, as they were also often issued in connection with anniversaries and to commemorate certain events. Soviet stamps combined two functions, which at first might seem contradictory. On the one hand, they were part of the propaganda machine. On the other, they were examples of high quality design and represented well-executed graphic and artistic material. Serge Stamper has gathered together a new collection of stamps from the Soviet period from 1917 – 1991. Both the stamps themselves and what they depict are nothing short of the traces of a disappearing civilization, its imprint on life on our planet.
