This series of works by Robert Rauschenberg is composed of several photogravures – or photo etchings – that blend US and Soviet imagery and visual cues examining the tension between two of the world’s preeminent superpowers. In this photo, we see several iconic buildings and people: the St. Basil Cathedral in Red Square, which Rauschenberg has appropriately shaded in red, the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers shaded in a blue, and Vladimir Lenin, among other images.
