"Hello Lenin" is a documentation of a performance Kamen Stoyanov did in his hometown Rousse in Bulgaria in the summer of 2003. It shows him climbing on an empty pedestal, whose statue had been removed 13 years ago. Formerly, the statue of Lenin was placed here. Stoyanov wanted to demonstrate how the statue can be removed, but not an ideology. The empty pedestal indicates an indifine ideological change.
