Interview for Description of the Lie.
Futurism or 'Machine
Art' in the USSR
In Russia, the Futurist impulse combined with Kandinsky's "abstract expressionism" to inspire Futurist, Cubo-Futurist, and Suprematist works of art. In addition to Malevich and Tatlin, the work of Gustav Klutsis, Liubov Popova and Alexander Rodchenko is of special interest to our studies in visual culture. These styles share much with what I have identified as Constructivism.
In addition to the files below, take a look at these files in order
to gauge the practical implications and the reception of accorded to Cubism
and Futurism in Russia.
