Abstract:

"Painter, architect, engineer, set designer, father to the Russian Constructivist movement, inventor of the 'counter-relief' and author of one of modernism's greatest icons, the 'Monument to the Third International,' Vladimir Tatlin blazed an incredible trail of innovation through the glory years of the Soviet avant-garde. Nevertheless, 'Not the old, not the new, but the necessary' was his motto; having spent his early years as an icon painter, Tatlin eschewed the modernist disavowal of heritage in favor of a research-based attitude to materials and genres. His 'counter-relief' sculptures, made of wood, cardboard, metal and wire, were foundational works for Rodchenko and the Constructivists, and their influence can be seen today in the works of creators as various as Zaha Hadid and Richard Tuttle. But it is his 'Monument to the Third International,' often called simply 'Tatlin's Tower,' that has grasped the imaginations of artists, architects and writers down the generations... Published for a landmark exhibition at the Museum Tinguely in Basel, it examines every facet of his output, from his early Cubist-influenced paintings to the counter-reliefs, the 'Tower,' prints, set and costume designs and aeronautic researches, and constitutes an essential portrait of the ambitions of Soviet modernism."--Publisher's description.
