On may 9 every year, the countries that were part of the soviet union celebrate the victory day, a commemoration of the win over nazi germany in the second world war. the war was one of the stands used to generate a genuine patriotic pride among the soviet citizens. after their dissolution, countries like estonia, georgia, ukraine or belarus have been generating their own identity, frequently under a common thread marked by russian economic and political dominance.
The project is a journey through their urban landscapes and their people, and runs between that common patriotic pride, and the rupture. between the inherited elements and the construction of the new ones.
