The term “Leninopad”, a pun that translates literally as “Leninfall”, arose out of the massive wave of Vladimir Lenin monuments demolitions that
started in Ukraine during Maidan Revolution. At the beginning of 2017, the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance stated that 1,320 such
monuments had been dismantled since then. Roughly a hundred years before, the Council of People’s Commissars in the newly formed USSR
headed by Lenin signed a decree that demanded the dismantling of monuments erected in honour of the Tsar family. The arrangement of found
images represents a catalogue created for the public. The attempt to purge collective memory by demolishing physical evidence of the figure
responsible for the darkest pages in Ukrainian history conjures the ghosts of the fallen totalitarian regime and its soviet project.
