Portfolio: The Anti-Religious Alphabet

From a portfolio of 27 prints.

Although our protagonist is clearly reading, which is the point of learning the alphabet, he is also laughing at the religious stories he finds in the Bible. The premise of the Soviet educational movement can be summarized with another well-used slogan of the time: "Literacy: The Path to Communism." Students were expected to read selectively in a way that would advance the industrialization of society and the principles of atheist materialism.
