Abstractionism in Europe. Kandinsky, Popova, Mayakovsky, Malevich is the title of the exhibition of art that Fort Bard, cultural and tourist center on the outskirts of the Aosta Valley, is home from January 31 to June 2, 2015. More than 80 works, mainly oils and drawings of extraordinary value and a bronze by Antoine Pevsner, belonging to a prestigious private collection of Germany, for the first time exhibited in Italy and only previously exposed on two occasions in Europe. The exhibition also features 44 original books of the same cultural artistic movement with numerous pieces of Vladimir Mayakovsky and works of Nikolay Punin, Kasimir Malevich, Lajos Kassák and two films by Hans Richter (1888-1976) and Viking Eggeling (1880-1925), pioneer of 'geometric abstraction cinematic avant-garde European. Their work, completed in 1921, are considered among the fundamental works of modernity. The collection, assembled with passion and perseverance over the years, is a core theme consistent with historical and geographical aspects of great interest: the works admirably illustrate the artistic trends of Eastern and Central Europe during the first half of the twentieth century, with particular attention to the birth of abstract painting and the movement of non-figurative art that followed, and widely spread throughout Europe. In a climate of general renewal of artistic language, in fact, starting in about 1910 they develop different abstract tendencies within the avant-garde movements German, Russian, Czech and Dutch. Wassily Kandinsky (1866 Moscow-Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1944) occupies a prominent place in this artistic context, as his work can be seen as the meeting point between the various movements throughout Europe looked with interest to language abstract and that arose in various parts of Europe. To complete the team of Russian abstract artists in the exhibition: Vladimir Tatlin, Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzky and Alexandra Exter, who develops his plastic language incorporating influences from Cubism and Futurism. Even the work of Natalia Goncharova can be considered a special form of Cubo-Futurism Russian, a language that the artist will mature in Paris, where he moved to live in 1917, a sign of how the French capital he pursued in the cultural field a very strong capacity Attraction on the artists. Kasimir Malevich, Kandinsky with, can be considered the most important pioneer of abstract art. From the context of the Russian Cubo-Futurism, Malevich painted geometric shapes like square, the sphere, the cross, giving rise to the movement of Suprematism: an art not descriptive, purely contemplative and spiritual. The movement of Constructivism is represented through the works of László Moholy-Nagy, an important member of the German Bauhaus. Max Bill (Abstraction-Creation) and Georges Vantongerloo (De Stijl) testify to the spread of an abstract-geometric respectively in Switzerland and the Netherlands. Through the works of thirty authors featured in the show, it is possible to reconstruct the scenario in which it has developed one of the major lineages of the twentieth century, and the cultural milieu that saw the birth of what can be called a real revolution of the image.
