Anarchism and the Russian Artistic Avant-Garde


Burenina, Olga (2018). Anarchism and the Russian Artistic Avant-Garde. In: Tupitsyn, Margarita. Russian Dada 1914–1924. Cambridge: The MIT Press, 226-255.

Abstract

The Reina Sofía Museum is opening an exhibition on Russian avant-garde art from 1914 to 1924: about 250 works including paintings, collages, illustrations, films and publications by a great number of Russian artists.
Dada or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early twentieth century, with early centres in Zürich, Switzerland. Dada artists rejected the logic, reason, and aestheticism of modern capitalist society, instead expressing nonsense, irrationality, and anti-bourgeois protest in their works. The Dada movement's principles were first collected in Hugo Ball’s Dada Manifesto in 1916. Key figures in the movement included Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray and many others.
The exhibition opening at the Reina Sofía Museum includes about 250 works by Russian artists such as Nathan Altman, Vasyl Yermilov, Ivan Kluin, Gustav Klutsis, Aleksei Kruchenykh, Valentina Kulagina, Vladimir Lebedev, Kazimir Malevich, Aleksei Morgunov, Ivan Puni, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Olga Rozanova, Sergei Sharshun, and many others.
The works on display are from a variety of disciplines: painting, collage, drawings, books and films, among others.
