Publisher's Description
Between the Public and the Private is the first English-language publication to address the work of the pioneering Constructivist artist, designer, photographer, and photomontagist Gustav Klutsis. Unlike the work of fellow members of the Soviet avant-garde, such as Aleksandr Rodchenko and El Lissitsky, Klutsis’s extensive and innovative output has remained relatively unexplored. This catalogue also presents the groundbreaking but largely unknown work of Valentina Kulagina, Klutsis’s wife and colleague, and explores the creative partnership that existed between the two artists. In addition to a scholarly text by curator Margarita Tupitsyn, a leading scholar of Russian art and photography who has had access to the artists’ family archives, Between the Public and the Private presents, for the first time in any language, translated excerpts from Klutsis’s letters and Kulagina’s diaries, offering new insight on the artists and the political and cultural climate in which they were working.
