Emigre’s Suitcase

«Bartolius» Law Bureau

Another project, made by request of our regular client Bartolius Law Bureau.

This promo calendar is designed as an old émigré’s suitcase. According to a popular saying by Georg Hegel, history repeats itself twice: the first time as a tragedy, the second time as a farce. The suitcase is a repository of accessories that create tragic and comic images of the several waves of Russian emigration, from the October Revolution to the present day.

The complex composition of the calendar’s individual sheets includes old photographs, newspaper clippings, art objects, characteristic of an era (military orders, watches, jewelry, bottles, etc.). The meaningful focus of these, seemingly chaotic, collages are actual documents — the newspaper notes and ads — reflecting the spirit of the times in terms of the legal practice.
