Krokodil magazine was an illustrated Soviet satirical journal, published in the USSR between 1922 and 1991. This blog is related to my PhD project. I am interested in political cartoons and caricature, and satirical journals in general, but specifically the operation of the medium in the Soviet context. I investigate Krokodil in relation to theories of carnival, transmediality and performativity.

Behind The Iron Curtain:Satire
This is a post from a very interesting blog, which often posts items related to Krokodil and Soviet satire. (Thank you very much for doing so!) I am especially interested in the photos, showing the different ways in which Soviet caricature was consumed by viewers.
