Description
1ye Oktyabrya - Vsesoyuzny Den’ Udarnika [October 1st Is the All-Union Shockworker’s Day], a poster by an anonymous artist. Published by OGIZ-IZOGIZ, Moscow-Leningrad, 1931. 105 x 73 cm.

An often-reproduced poster, largely thanks to Victoria Bonnell’s Iconography of Power: Soviet Political Posters Under Lenin and Stalin (University of California Press, 1999). In the opinion of this describer, the anonymous Constructivist artist found an effective way to hail the effort of millions of shock workers that had joined the movement and contributed mightily to the task of meeting the Five-Year Plan’s goals. Ms. Bonnell, on the other hand, concentrates on the fact that the individual workers are reduced in this poster to poorly differentiated silhouettes. To her, the poster is reflective of the artist’s compliance with the demands of ideology that at the time de-emphasized the role of an individual hero in favor of underscoring the power of the collective. The two points of view are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
