Icon and Photomontage

"Icon and Photomontage" is dedicated to archaic elements in Russian constructivism. After 1923 constructivists unexpectedly returned to figurative art and created "surrogate" pictures using the medium of photomontage. Their works were employing archetypical semantic elements typical for early medieval art. Innovators proved to be archaists. The lecture will investigate the "iconic" essence of photomontages of such artists as Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzky and Gustav Klutsis.
