1.     Józef Robakowski, Son of Russia (Syn Rosji), 1991


The titular son of Russia is Yuri Gagarin, the Soviet cosmonaut and first man in space, (super)hero of the Soviet Union. In his video work, Robakowski juxtaposed graphics depicting Gagarin with music by Marek Chołoniewski and Krzysztof Knittel. Robakowski made a similar effort as previously in music videos for the group Moskva, or in his work Art Is Power, where he combined images of a Soviet army parade with music by the group Laibach. All of these films were created with express allusion to the socio-political situation.
