Herostratum art of Ukraine. Psychologist comment

An exhibition of posters, which was recently held in Kiev, once again demonstrated the state of social circles trying to assert themselves through the “Maidan performance”. Visitors to the exhibition “100 of the best patriotic posters” saw what Ukrainian art and society “breathes” today, and many were clearly delighted by the raging creativity of artists from Lviv, Kharkov, Kiev and other Ukrainian cities. The semantic load of the “canvases” fit into the usual for the current Ukrainian zombie-mass outline: “Colorado”, “quilted jackets”, “bloody Putin”, “Crimea - Ukraine,” “cyborg patriots”, “peremoga”, “happy life in The European Union in spite of Russia. ”

First you need to submit to familiarize several such works of Ukrainian "artists" in order, so to speak, to have an object of discussion before your eyes.

Herostratum art of Ukraine. Psychologist comment

About these and other works presented at the Kiev exhibition and the public spirit promoted through the media in Ukraine, the conversation turned to Olga Gorova, a psychologist and an employee of the Center for the Prevention of Asocial Phenomena working under the auspices of the Ministry of the Interior of the Russian Federation.

How can you from a professional point of view characterize those works that were presented at the Kiev exhibition?

Honestly, I am surprised by the general name of the works under which they were put up - “100 best patriotic posters”. Firstly, I sincerely do not understand what patriotism is here. Secondly, if these are the “best” posters, then it’s scary to even assume that it was depicted on ordinary ones that didn’t get to the exhibition, if there were any, and if they didn’t pull anything that came to hand to Kiev.

From the psychological, and even from the psychiatric point of view, the authors of these works have obvious problems. Authors to the forefront expose that in a normal healthy person usually causes a negative reaction. I see here an image of coffins, skulls, feces, graves, the process of vomiting. Moreover, the presentation of the material itself suggests that their creators did not leave the state of creative infantilism. This work is akin to how a student who is not ready to admit that he was wrong, writes an indecent text with a brick on the wall to the person who made the remark. Only these words and schoolchildren are unlikely to display on their own wall, and this, apparently, does not bother Ukrainian authors. They would have pasted something similar on their foreheads to be in the fashionable stream ...

Olga, by the way, you paid attention to the use of Soviet posters by Ukrainian artists. What's this? The presence of a creative crisis, disguised by the use of other people's work? Or something different?

Yes of course. To begin with, I will say that it is necessary to turn to the copyright holders of Soviet poster graphics, because the “author” works of Ukrainian artists are outright theft, and with further use of xenophobia in the key. In the civilized countries of the world, to which Ukraine, apparently, is no longer relevant, such artists would have been expected to have obvious problems with the law and considerable fines. The prosecutor's office should pay attention to this.

From a psychological point of view, this is a strange situation at all. If they tried to form some kind of new informational field of patriotism on the basis of rejecting all that is connected with the USSR and Russia, then I am surprised at the use of Soviet posters for this purpose. We have such a term as dictates obsession. I think that here we are seeing him. Moreover, this obsession is clearly trying to extrapolate to more and more people. One will look and say: “Ugh!”, And the other, more susceptible to psychological influences, may accept as an objective coverage of events.

Do you think this is an irreversible process?

No I do not think so. In any society, there are those who are trying to gain control over other people, to form a society of the slave, on the basis of the substitution of concepts. Now it is fashionable to use the word "zombie." In Ukraine, this is not even propaganda. Rather, it is a kind of self-satisfaction, which engaged persons who are not able to achieve success in the process of creative, and not destructive creativity, and political too. It is a thirst for attention to oneself, a thirst for power for those who experience mental problems. Here we are dealing with the new "Gyrostrata". This is a type of phobia-based manic syndrome about the fact that no one pays you and will never pay attention. In Ukraine, it is the Herostrats that is right now. But the power of the “Herostratus” simply by definition cannot last for long. It will stop at that moment when there will be nothing to crush (I say, and spiritual harmony). I hope that it will stop earlier, and Ukraine will move from destruction to creation.

Thanks for the interview!

      but I’d like to dwell on a poster about the scoop’s heritage. by the time the new leadership ironed the Donbas, it became obvious that this campaign spread only to 2 areas.
      What I want to say, do you want to destroy the legacy of the scoop? blow up, list: tanks, planes, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, sau, throw away all your light and heavy small arms, blow up weapons depots, level hospitals, factory schools, factories with English bulldozers. demolish Kharkov and Nikolaev enterprises, destroy the enterprises that own Kolomoisky and Poroshenko, they are also shovels.
      and in the end, shoot yourself please, because you, too, were created in the USSR ..

      After the Maidan, almost the entire state apparatus of Ukraine went overboard.
      Check out all of their experts who talk about the Russian threat. A couple of years ago, they called us brothers for centuries.
      So not surprisingly, they are all trying to survive in the current environment. And surely they hide their true feelings even from themselves.
      Now in Ukraine the fashion is to blame everything Russian. And after a couple of years, they will want to sweep it all away. For me, it reminds me of Germany in the late 30s - early 40s.

    Even a cursory glance at the above posters is enough to understand that today's Ukraine is a "scoop", and a scoop turned inside out is destructive. After all, a war with emptiness is a terribly destructive thing for the psyche and in general, how can you not remember Confucius, who said that "it is difficult to look for a black cat in a dark room, especially when she is not there."

      I consider the main thing for Russia to establish a normal life in the Donbass. It will be abruptly military victories, and most importantly without death.

    One more was:
    A criminal case against the artist Anton Myrzin was initiated by the Federal Security Service in the Perm region. The reason for this was the exhibition "100 Patriotic Posters" in Kiev, in which the author of the poster "Kill the Colorado" took part in early December
    Anton Myrzin: “I was forced to emigrate from Russia to Ukraine in order to obtain political asylum there, with the possible further prospect of professional growth in the field of political and propaganda art.”

    I wanted to draw the attention of TopWar readers that the text for the posters is in Russian.
    Wondering why? Either because there are no Ukrainian artists, or because the authors KNEW in advance that their posters were intended for the Russian public and were not intended for Ukrainian farmers not inclined to their "great" art.
    Whoever touches more than will get it! This is the main principle of this "creativity".
    And, of course, to make money faster with bread and butter ...
    The psychologist’s assessment is correct - the infantile level; in Russian, it is underdevelopment.

    The posters are not patriotic anyway, because it’s not in their language why they are in Russian in the language of the aggressor, so to speak. You can imagine the poster Motherland Mother Testament in German for Soviet people. I can only make one conclusion: there is no such language as the Ukrainian mov did not take place, since patriotic posters are written in the language of their opponent, it seems.

        Dear A. Volodin, but it seems to me your opponent is partially right. After all, by publishing these crafts, and even evaluating them with the help of a police psychologist, you obviously counted on a certain reaction from a certain part of commentators. Some of them are even worse than Ukrainian ones, see the poster with naked women. I hope you do not consider it a profound work. By the way, a police psychologist should still partially know the law. Nevertheless, he works in a law enforcement agency. Whose prosecutor's office and what should pay attention to, it is hardly able to tell you.

    If they tried to form a new information field of patriotism on the basis of rejection of everything connected with the USSR and Russia, then I am surprised at the use of Soviet posters for these purposes.

    It is not surprising if we analyze the goals of customers and performers of these posters, as well as understand who is the main target group.
    I think no one doubts that the main goal of the State Department is to sow discord and hatred between Ukrainians and Russians. Therefore, the Soviet style of posters is most likely designed for Russians and people who are sympathetic to the Soviet past.
    Judging by some comments - they achieved their goal:
    Quote: Leader
    No, not you brothers to us ...

    It seemed like why did the site’s redaction help the State Department by publishing these materials .. Probably just the pursuit of rating.
    Ukrainians, like Russians after the collapse of the USSR, are looking for a new national idea. The role of the defender of morality in the world has already been tried on by Russia. They probably do not want to repeat themselves again and wander, for now, in the darkness. Forgive us our sins.

    This, although a disease, is very funny. You can’t seriously look at it without a smile. When patients begin to compete in which of them is more painful - medicine is powerless because it chokes with laughter. It is dangerous to operate patients with tears in their eyes.
    For those who think that Ukraine is entering the last phase, I promise - this is for a long time. Then on the weekend I saw a badge for kids - something like "Young Bandera". Clowns in circuses are already losing their jobs - Ukraine has taken their place.

    2. "Country of not frightened idiots" (Russian film "Genius").
    3. "The Island of Bad Luck" (the song of the same name from the Russian film "The Diamond Arm").
    4. "Brothel" (an indecent institution with naked girls and boys, focused on customers from the EU and the USA).
    5. Post-Soviet "madhouse" (a psychiatric hospital that occupied most of the territory of the former Ukrainian SSR).

    The author does not pretend to be the final set of synonyms!
