ART, DESIGN & PHOTOGRAPHY IN
This lecture surveys developments in Russian art and design after the 1917 revolution, from the experimentation of the first decade to the stranglehold Stalin exerted upon the arts during the 1930’s. Russian artists and designers such as Tatlin, Malevich and the Constructivists attempted to design for a new unprecedented society.
Their achievements in the field of painting, sculpture photography, cinema and all forms of design are still felt today.
