During my study at the art academy in Kassel I attend a trip to USSR in 1989, shortly before breakdown of the USSR. We visited Moskau and Tiflis in the end of april and may. So we had the opportunity watching the preparations for the 1. may celebration in Moskau and the parade in Tiflis. In this time there were neither Mac Donald, Burger KIng nor shopping malls. I didn't saw any commercials in the streets only propaganda, it was very impressive. I found the burger stand in a hidden backyard.
