Description of the artwork «They won with the banner of Lenin ...»

Gustav Klutsis. From the series "Artists of Soviet Constructivism".

In the twenties of the XX century, the attitude of artists to photography techniques changed.
To a new generation of avant-garde artists, the features of photographic technique are beginning to be seen as the foundation of a new poetics that allows us to show aspects of physical reality that eluded the eye brought up by traditional, “craft” painting and graphic technologies.
There is a kind of "second discovery" of photography - from the periphery of the artistic scene, it moves to its center, and everything that until recently seemed to be deficiencies to be corrected turns into advantages.
One by one, representatives of the militant avant-garde declare their rejection of painting and engraving for the sake of more accurate, more reliable, more economical - in a word, more modern technology and associate re-evaluation of photography with a rethinking of the social functions of art itself, which is from production
rarities for "disinterested contemplation" should
turn into a form of organization of the collective life of society, corresponding to the modern level of development of productive forces, and at the same time - into a means of its revolutionary change.

Photography has become one of the preferred ways of expressing art forms for constructivists, as a study of the language of art in its autonomy and former "opacity", while finding - the ideology of free form creation, not limited by the need to reflect the existing
the order of things. Within the framework of this ideology,
the concept of life-building, which makes the problem of convergence of avant-garde and photography especially intriguing.
