Rediscovery and reappraisal of the Russian Constructivist.

Vladimir Tatlin (1885–1953) was one of the leading figures of the Russian avant-garde. His heterogeneous body of work ranges from paintings, costume and set designs for the theater, and the invention of a new genre – the counter-relief – to architectural designs for a tower to propagate the ideals and goals of the October Revolution and the utopian flying machine known as the Letatlin.

This publication is a summary of an interdisciplinary symposium that took place in late September 2012 at the Tinguely Museum in Basel, where researchers from around the world were invited to take stock of and reexamine the artist’s creative methods and his impact.

The publication affords systematic insight into Tatlin’s oeuvre and reflects the current state of research.
