What roles do utopias and realities play in the art world?
The El Lissitzky – Ilya and Emilia Kabakov exhibition considers this question and therefore makes an essential contribution to the Universalmuseum Joanneum’s this year’s theme: “Utopias in art.”
By setting the great Russian artist El Lissitzky side by side in one exhibition with Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, an insight is gained into two chapters of Russian history. Early Soviet art is juxtaposed with that of later generations, giving us a clearer perception of the art and culture of a period that was to have a lasting influence on the art world.
