MOSCOW'91 Throw Pillow


At dawn on Aug. 19, 1991, Soviet citizens woke to the announcement on radio and TV that an Emergency Committee had been formed to govern the country. For several hours, state-controlled airwaves went dead — except for a continuous loop of the ballet “Swan Lake” that played for hours and hours.

5 months later came the collapse of the USSR.

For inhabitants of the post-Soviet space, Swan Lake became a symbol of the 1991 coup d'état.
