Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Russian Art

The twentieth century was the age of revolution in Russia. From 1917 to 1991 the rules of society and art were overturned and refashioned again and again. The unprecedented creativity of the early avant-garde of Kandinsky, Malevich and Tatlin, fuelled by the promises of the Bolshevik revolution, forged an entirely new model of artistic practices, aiming to build the world anew. Looking at architecture, painting, monumental sculpture, design and film of the Russian avant-garde, followed by Stalinist socialist realism, non-conformist art, and post-Soviet art, this module explores the dynamics of suppression and resistance which defined the arts in Russia.
