Autorenporträt
Darmon Richter is a British researcher with a particular fascination for the ideological art and architecture of communist regimes. Born in Oxford, he was studying to be a psychotherapist when a bad case of wanderlust lured him away to the unknown. He backpacked from China to Haiti before settling in Eastern Europe, where he was mesmerised by the striking visual contradiction presented by communist-era buildings and memorials: bold, heroic, utopian designs, often ruined and forgotten, like abandoned blueprints for a future that never arrived. Richter committed himself to uncovering the history of these places. Today he leads tours to communist heritage sites in nine countries and one post-Soviet conflict zone, in addition to working with various local conservation projects. Damon Murray and Stephen Sorrell have been publishing critically acclaimed books on Soviet culture since 2004 with their Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia. More recent titles include Godless Utopia, Spomenik Monument Database and Soviet Bus Stops.
