Description

At the beginning of the Soviet Union, a group of artists abandoned the studio and conventional means of art production in order to pursue a form of creative work that better served the countrys new and growing socialist agenda. In this process, this group of artists deemed themselves Constructivists and attempted to distance themselves as far as possible from previous art movements. However, when examining their work closely, the influence of previous movements, especially suprematism led by Kazimir Malevich, becomes evident.
