DVD Red! Art in the land of the Soviets
During the 1910s in Russia, a group of visionary painters adopted radically abstract approaches, upsetting the artistic conventions of their time. From the frenzy of the 1917 revolution, a symbol of great freedom, to Stalinist totalitarianism; artists of the avant-garde (Malevich, Tatlin, Lissitzky, Rodchenko, Stepanova, Deineka, and others) forged a new kind of art - one of extraordinary modernity - and strived to nourish their originality while coping with the regime's preconditions.
Inspired by hope, enthusiasm, and disillusionment, these fascinating works born of the revolution demonstrate the fertility and utopian vision of art in soviet lands.
