Art used as an instrument for social purposes. Sheet metal and glass. Industrial Design. Geometric shapes.
A movement in modern art originating in Moscow in 1920 and characterized by the use of industrial materials such as glass, sheet metal, and plastic to create nonrepresentational, often geometric objects.
A modern aesthetic movement that turns to shapes in nature and machines for models of formal and functional autonomy. The underlying theory is that a work of art should be an autonomous object with a life of its own and that it should reflect economy and precision. The style is non-objective, and the materials are often iron, tin, wood, glass, plaster, and plastic--an attempt to bridge the gap between everyday life and art.
art movement that begun in Russia c. 1913. Characterized by the use of everyday materials in abstract compositions.
This art movement originated in Russia in the early 20th century and typically characterizes sculptures made with industrial materials – metal, glass, plastic, etc., that emphasize space instead of mass.
Constructivism was an artistic and architectural movement in Russia from 1913 onward (especially present after the October Revolution), and a term often used in modern art today, which dismissed "pure" art in favour of art used as an instrument for social purposes, namely, the construction of the socialist system. The term Construction Art was first used as a derisive term by Kazimir Malevich to describe the work of Alexander Rodchenko in 1917. Constructivism first appears as a positive term in Naum Gabo's Realistic Manifesto of 1920.
