Communist Party USA Commemorative Stamps - Yevgeniy Fiks, 2008



In this project, I produced US postal stamps featuring portraits of former leaders of the Communist Party USA (such as John Reed, William Z. Foster, Benjamin Davis, and others) and then for seven months used them on return envelops when I was sending my monthly bill payments to corporations, such as Citi Mortgage, Verizon, T-mobile, Time Warner Cable, etc. In the project, a procedure of paying monthly bills – a ritual of the capitalist world order - became a commemoration of the - repressed and forgotten legacy of - the American Communist movement.
