Thomas Ruff: tableaux russes

For the tableaux russes, Ruff draws on photographs published in Soviet propaganda magazines such as URSS en construction (1930–1949), which was published in several languages. It featured the work of renowned artists including Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzky, and Varvara Stepanova. After Constructivism was massively denounced as a bourgeois art form by the Stalin nomenklatura, it ceased publication; the subsequent magazine Soviet Union appeared from 1950. —adapted from press release for Thomas Ruff: tableaux russes and tableaux chinois at Konrad Fischer Galerie, 2022
