Эль Лисицкий, культовый советский авангардист, прошедший путь от иллюстраций к еврейским сказкам до создания нового направления в искусстве. На лекции мы подробно рассмотрим эволюцию творческого метода мастера: его ранние иллюстрации к пасхальной истории о козочке Хад-Гадья, возникновение абстрактных форм и создание первых ПРОУНов (проектов утверждения нового), архитектурные и дизайнерские проекты позднего Лисицкого, включая и его знаменитый план высотки у Никитских ворот.

El Lissitzky, a cult Soviet avant-garde artist, went from illustrating Jewish fairy tales to creating a new style in art.

This lecture will explore the evolution of the Lissitzky's distinct practice through his early illustrations for the Passover song, Had Gadya; the emergence of abstract forms within his work; and the architectural and design projects of his later years, including his famous plan for the high-rise building at the Nikitsky Gate.
