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.

An article with some visuals on an exhibition of modern Russian protest art, which has some striking similarities to street art, Soviet poster art and Krokodil. I'm intrigued by the dissected crocodile in one of the photos.
