Animated Films by HSE Students to Be Shown on ‘Culture’ Channel
On the 250th anniversary of the birth of Russian writer Ivan Krylov, third-year students of the programme ‘Animation and illustration’ (supervised by Elena Kitaeva) of HSE School of Art and Design revamped and gave new meanings and forms to the works of the writer. They prepared 10 short animated films based on his fables that will be aired on the TV channel ‘Culture’ (‘Kultura’) throughout the week.
Elena Kitaeva, curator of the project and lecturer in the ‘Animation and Illustration’ programme says, ‘I was very pleased to see that the fables of the great Krylov prompted some very creative reinterpretations by our students. The films turned out to be bright, bold, and stylistically diverse. It's nice that each of the students created a film that shows their own original artistic approach.’

Why was there always a shortage of fashionable clothing in the USSR? What was the typical career path for a Soviet fashion designer? Who had power and influence in the socialist fashion industry? HSE Associate Professor Yulia Papushina examined these questions by reconstructing the everyday life of the Perm Fashion House during the late socialism era. Her study is the first to look into the recent history of clothing design and manufacturing in Russian provinces.
