On May 9 of every year, Victory Day is celebrated in the countries that were part of the Soviet Union, a commemoration of the victory 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.
