Tent. London, Whitechapel Gallery, 15-01-2015, 06-04-2015. - Groepstentoonstelling onderzoekt de politiek-maatschappelijke aspecten van de ontwikkeling van de geometrische abstratie in de periode 1915-2015. - Coll. VAM: Lissitzky, El, Klinom krasnym bej belych, 1919-1920 (reprint 1966). - This book is devoted to the global development of geometric abstraction and includes the works of Carl Andre, David Batchelor, Dan Flavin, Andrea Fraser, Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian, Gabriel Orozco, Hélio Oiticica, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Rosemarie Trockel, Theo Van Doesburg, Zhao Yao, and Andrea Zittel. Exploring how the universal visual language of geometric abstraction relates to society and politics, this volume also demonstrates how the movement's revolutionary aesthetic continues to impact culture across the globe. It traces a century of abstract art from 1915 to the present day and includes sculpture, film, photography, and painting. Organized around four distinct themes--architectonics, communication, the everyday, and utopia--the book presents a chronological survey extending from Russia to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, South America, and the US
