El Lissitzky : beyond the Abstract cabinet : photography, design, collaboration by Margarita Tupitsyn( Book )

21 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lazar Markovich Lissitzky is widely known as a Russian avant-garde artist who made significant contributions to abstract art in the 1920s. Until now his experiments with photography, photomontage, and graphic and exhibition designs in the 1920s and throughout the 1930s have not been documented and thoroughly analyzed. This book explores both the political and aesthetic aspects of Lissitzky’s late multimedia work from his designs for the Abstract Cabinet to his death in 1941.The author and the two contributors give special attention to Lissitzky’s intense collaboration first with German and then with Soviet photographers, designers, and filmmakers, and they discuss how his various personal friendships and acquaintances influenced the directions he took in photography and design. The book presents photographic works by Lissitzky and these other artists as well as some of Lissitzky’s early non-objective art that foreshadows his experiments in figurative art. It also includes Lissitzky’s correspondence with his Western colleagues and his wife Sophie Kueppers
The Soviet photograph, 1924-1937 by Margarita Tupitsyn( Book )

12 editions published between 1966 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tupitsyn challenges the view that the Soviet avant-garde peaked in the 1920s and was subsequently forced to conform with Bolshevik politics. Instead she asserts that photography during this period represented the last "great experiment" in the search for the most effective ways to connect art, radical politics, and the masses. Investigating the means by which the new visual tools for disseminating revolutionary messages were adapted to the needs of Stalinist propaganda, Tupitsyn relates major examples of single-frame photography and photomontage to such events as the implementation of the New Economic Policy, Lenin's death, and Stalin's first and second Five-Year Plans, and to mounting censorship of the arts. She also establishes a link between the writings of critics and the development of photography and photomontage at this time. The book presents previously unpublished material from Klutsis's letters, Rodchenko's public lectures, Lissitzky's late writings on the mass media, and Kulagina's personal diaries, as well as many previously unknown photographs
Malevich and film by Margarita Tupitsyn( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Russian Painter Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935), unlike other prominent Soviet artists, has not been much considered in discussions of the contributions of the avant-garde to photography and film. Yet a close examination of theoretical and practical aspects of Malevich's oeuvre not only places him fully in the Soviet post-abstract discourse on these media but also, as Margarita Tupitsyn argues in this book, alters the accepted view of his post-Suprematist period. Exploring Malevich's involvement with film for the first time, Tupitsyn draws on little-known writings about cinema by the artist himself, newly accessible works, and many previously unpublished photographs and documents. Malevich's influence on twentieth-century art extends far more widely than has been claimed for him before, the author concludes." "The book begins with a re-evaluation of Malevich's most famous painting, Black Square, a work whose meaning and function was in constant flux. Through Black Square Malevich began to cross the bridge from the painting medium to mechanically generated production, ultimately influencing the post-revolutionary phase of his Suprematism and leading to his abandonment of abstraction in the late 1920s. Tupitsyn discusses in detail Malevich's writing about the cinema, the cinematic qualities of some of his works, the work of other contemporary artists with bonds to cinematography, and the significant impact of Malevich's thought and work on Russian, European, and American artists of the 1920s and 1930s as well as the post-war period." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition that opens in Lisbon at the Fundacao Centro Cultural de Belem in May 2002, then travels to Spain."--Jacket
Rodchenko & Popova : defining constructivism by Christina Kiaer( Book )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aleksandr Rodchenko and Liubov Popovaq were leading figures in the Russian avant-garde during its most exciting period, from the 1917 Revolution to Popova's tragically early death in 1924 at the age of thirty-five. Together they believed that new forms of art could play a key role in transforming society and reorganizing everyday life. As leading lights in the Constructivist movement they were responsible for an array of iconic works, from painting to magazine covers and fabric designs. Featuring new scholarship, as well as archival photos and illustrating many previously unpublished works, this book demonstrates the extent of their influence on their circle of friends and collaborators and their wide impact on the course of twentieth-century art."--Jacket
Gustav Klutsis and Valentina Kulagina : photography and montage after constructivism by Margarita Tupitsyn( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klutsis and Valentina Kulagina: Photography and Montage After Constructivism is an in-depth study of the work of Gustav Klutsis, the pioneer of photomontage in the Soviet Union and a central figure in the transition from the formalism of the early Soviet avant-garde to the increasingly state-sponsored art production of the 1930s. Also presented is the work of Klutsis's wife and colleague, Valentina Kulagina, an innovative poster, book, and exhibition designer, who participated in such seminal exhibitions as the 1928 Pressa exhibition in Cologne. Photography and Montage After Constructivism includes the artists' important public works - street displays, posters, and book and magazine desigs - as well as intimate family portraits and experimental photographs and photomontages. Drawing from her research at Russian archives and on previously unavailable information contained in the artists' letters and diaries - many translated here for the first time - art historian Margarita Tupitsyn offers new insights on the artists and the political and cultural climate in which they were working."--BOOK JACKET

Moscow vanguard art : 1922-1992 by Margarita Tupitsyn( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive survey of art in Moscow in the era of the Soviet Union that champions the unquenchable spirit of artistic experimentation in the face of political repression Ambitious and interdisciplinary, Moscow Vanguard Art: 1922-1992 tells the story of generations of artists who resisted Soviet dictates on aesthetics, spanning the Russian avant-garde, socialist realism, and Soviet postwar art in one volume. Drawing on art history, criticism, and political theory, Margarita Tupitsyn unites these three epochs, mapping their differences and commonalities, ultimately reconnecting the postwar vanguard with the historical avant-garde. With a focus on Moscow artists, the book chronicles how this milieu achieved institutional and financial independence, and reflects on the theoretical and visual models it generated in various media, including painting, photography, conceptual, performance, and installation art. Generously illustrated, this ground-breaking volume, published in the year that marks the centennial of the October Revolution, demonstrates that, regardless of political repression, the spirit of artistic experiment never ceased to exist in the Soviet Union

Liebe in Zeiten der Revolution : Künstlerpaare der russischen Avantgarde( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Kunstforum Wien beleuchtet die bahnbrechenden Errungenschaften der russischen Avantgarde unter einem neuen Aspekt: dem Künstlerpaar. Gleichberechtigte Produktions- und Lebensformen von Künstlern und Künstlerinnen im Kontext der Oktoberrevolution (1917) unterlaufen nicht nur das Image vom »einsamen künstlerischen Genie±, sondern forcieren auch die Verflechtung von Kunst und Leben, Öffentlichem und Privatem. Künstlerpaare wie Warwara Stepanowa und Alexander Rodtschenko oder Natalja Gontscharowa und Michail Larionow verknüpften sämtliche Sparten künstlerischen Schaffens mit Theoriebildung und ästhetischer Aktion und formulierten über ihre Kunst den politischen Anspruch nach einer Lebensveränderung. Obgleich das künstlerische Duo auch oft nicht entsprechend gleichberechtigt umgesetzt werden konnte und ein theoretisches Konstrukt blieb, kristallisiert sich in dieser Lebens- und Schaffensform doch die Geschlechterideologie einer Gesellschaft heraus. Der Katalog zur Ausstellung geht der Frage nach, welche Arbeitspraxis und Ausprägungen von Beziehungs- und Machtverhältnissen die russische Avantgarde hervorgebracht hat und welche strukturellen Besonderheiten sich daraus im Hinblick auf künstlerische Identität, Kreativität und Produktion ergeben. 00Exhibition: Bank Austria Kunstforum, Wien, Austria (14.10.15 - 31.01.2016)
