The Avant-Garde Train
This book delves into the world of the Russian Avant-Garde artists, who raced full speed ahead and created daring and original works on the way. Even today their ideas are challenging and their art is amazing, although it has been a century since their first experiments.
But this is no art history lecture course. You will hear the voices of Kazimir Malevich, Natalia Goncharova, Mikhail Larionov, Alexander Rodchenko, and others. Memoirs, manifestos, diary entries from contemporaries, and reviews by critics – this is what fills the pages of this unusual travelogue. Let’s jump in and journey together on this train, seeing and hearing what started their voyage, which passengers climbed aboard at different stations, what discoveries they made together, and what thought-provoking works of art they produced for the world.
