Russian Dada 1914-1924 (2018) [EN, ES]

20 August 2019, dusan

“This exhibition explores Russian avant-garde art through the perspective of the Anti-art canons associated with the international Dada movement.

The selected works reveal the intentions of many artists to take part in projects of public unrest with connotations in close proximity to Marxism and to adopt rejection, irony, the absurd and chance as the basic principles underpinning their artistic manifestations.”

With essays by Margarita Tupitsyn, Victor Tupitsyn, Olga Burenina-Petrova, and Natasha Kurchanova.
