The title of the show composed as a play with one apocryphal quote attributed to Lenin (Study, study, and study again to learn communism in reality), and most likely, a posthumous condensation of Lenin’s view of the Soviet Union’s post-revolutionary transformation as a process of permanent (self)education, which he voiced on innumerable occasions
This activity is realized in collaboration with ELF’S LIBRARY and INFOSHOP from Ljubliana, which have generously agreed to provide a selection of their publications for display.
