An interesting read from ARTLINK September 2016 by artist, academic and author Ann Finegan, a co-director of the Cementa rural art festival. In some ways it harks to commiestalgia for a generation of folk who decry the blatant abuse and exploitation that followed the collapse of the Soviets that is at present hastening the collapse of neo-liberal capitalism. It will end in tears. https://www.artlink.com.au/articles/4523/solastalgia-and-its-cure/
