About this artwork
In 1922 designer El Lissitzky and writer Ilya Ehrenburg founded an international design magazine featuring articles in Russian, German, and French. The goal of the journal was to publicize their recent experiences with Constructivism and disseminate their ideas about the role of art in revolutionary society. The articles highlight the important dialogue occurring between designers in the Soviet Union and Western Europe at this time, including those working out of institutions such as the Bauhaus.
