Further Biographical Context for Nicolai Michoutouchkine
Nicolai Michoutouchkine was born in 1929 and was predominantly inspired creatively by the 1930s growing up. Globally this period can be best characterised by the clash between the world’s predominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. n Europe, Surrealism continued to be the dominant artistic trend; a kind of expression and school of thought that by this time had spread across the globe. In Mexico, artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera incorporated many of these ideas into their radical political ideologies to develop a innovative kind of magic realism.
