Catalogue Note

This important work covers all the major trends of Russian Futurism and the revolutionary Avant-Garde: architecture, technology, the Proletariat, and the artistic concepts of tectonics, texture and Constructivism. The varied typography is reminiscent of the posters of the era by Lissitzky and Rodchenko. This was the first major critique of Constructivism but it was not well-received by Gan’s contemporaries.
