"Last Week! El Lissitzky"
1999-07-01 until 1999-09-05
Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona
Barcelona, , ES Spain

El Lissitzky’s contribution to the abstract art of the twenties is well known and has been analysed in a whole series of articles, books and catalogues. Yet his experiments in the fields of photography, photomontage, graphic design and exhibitions in the late twenties and the thirties still give grounds for controversy among specialists and are practically unknown to a wider public.

With the title El Lissitzky: Beyond the Abstract Cabinet, 1930-1941, this exhibition brings together Lissitzky’s multimedia works, with examples ranging from 1920 (when Lissitzky started designing the Abstract Cabinet) to 1941 (when he died in Moscow), devoting particular attention to his intense collaboration with German and Soviet photographers, designers and cinema producers, and the influence they had on his body of work. A prominent feature of this exhibition is the fact that many of the works will be going on show outside Russia for the first time.
