Display-Window exhibition 'Images of Leadership: Ivan IV and Lenin'
As part of the Images of Leadership project of the RUG Honours College Master programme, four master students present a small exhibition about the changing images of two Russian leaders: Ivan IV (1530-1584) and Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924).
How did Ivan IV and Lenin represent themselves? And how were they represented in later times? One of the students in the project: "Both Ivan IV and Lenin have taken trouble in creating a certain image of themselves. It is interesting to see how these images live on and how they change over time. An image of a dead leader is often adapted by a successor and used for his or her own ends. The exhibition shows how a person can become an idea, and how such an idea can change over time."
The exhibition is made by F rank Lanting, Bart Verschoor, Marc Wever en Christiaan Serbanescu-Kele, under supervision of lecturer Birgit van der Lans (History). The exhibition was made possible by the Universiteitsmuseum, the Stichting Groninger Universiteitsfonds, the Nederland-Ruslandcentrum en the RUG Honours College.
