This book accompanies the first comprehensive retrospective staged in the UK at Tate Modern (16 July – 26 October 2014)
It explores the career of a truly radical artist, whose work still influences artists today and investigates the artistic and ideological role Malevich played during a period of extreme social and political upheaval.
Russian-born Kazimir Malevich (1879–1935) was Russia’s most influential avant-garde artist, a key figure in a succession of art movements in the early twentieth century. His style of severe geometric abstraction, which he called suprematism, was a precursor to the development of constructivism. In the 1930s his work was banned in the Soviet Union after the Stalinist regime labelled abstract art as ‘bourgeois’. He then developed a new kind of figuration, still with the sole aim of communicating his theories about the nature of art.
This book includes accessible essays by leading art historians that discuss all aspects of his diverse output, offering an overview of his groundbreaking work as well as a more detailed exploration of a number of his drawings, teaching activities and revolutionary ideas.
Inside are lavish illustrations that include paintings, drawings and sculpture, as well as the teaching charts he used to explain his ideas.
Edited by Achim Borchardt-Hume, Head of Exhibitions at Tate Modern. With contributions by Iria Candela, Masha Chlenova, Nicholas Cullinan, Maria Gough, Maria Kokkori, Christin
