Russia on the Edge: Imagined Geographies and Post-Soviet Identity (Book)
Title: Russia on the Edge: Imagined Geographies and Post-Soviet Identity
Abstract: In January 1986, the new Borovitskaia Metro Station opened by the Kremlin wall in central Moscow. Built to remind the visitor of the low-arching hallways of the medieval Kremlin, the station's visual centerpiece is a vast, gold and burnt orange mural depicting the map of the Soviet Union and its peoples growing as a tree among the towers of the Kremlin.
