Magnum nominee Rafal Milach’s work explores the oppressive natures reflected in architecture, objects and social structures.

His latest exhibition, Refusal, includes a selection of older works as well as three new projects, FormingField of View and Finissage, each visually representing various systems of control and pressure exerted in the Soviet Union. The intensity, scale and methods of social engineering vary in each region, but they all serve a utopian vision designed by those in power.
