Aleksandr Rodchenko, Hanging Construction, 1920. Wood.    What amazes me about this piece is that it was cut out of a single piece of plywood and could be collapsed and opened up easily for transport. It would also move slowly with the air passing through its wooden ribs.

El Lissitzky’s entire career was laced with the belief that the artist could be an agent for change, later summarized with his edict, “das zielbewußte Schaffen” (goal-oriented creation).   El Lissitzky developed a suprematist style of his own, a series of abstract, geometric paintings which he called Proun (pronounced “pro-oon”). The exact meaning of “Proun” was never fully revealed
