Fabulous -- thanks Miguel!* In case you (or anyone else interested in Rodchenko and his avant-garde ilk) missed this thread posted by Taz earlier in the month, do check it out... a treasure trove of constuctivist/suprematist/etc'ist links.

*oh, the many, many months I waited as a lurker to say those words...

Constructivist poster design is fantastic, as is Rodchenko's photography. I love this stuff. Not much else to say, 'cept great post, Miguel.

Miguel I believe this is the 3rd time you have linked to one of my favorite artists (I actually forget who the other 2 that you linked were, but remember the fact that they were linked)! Thank you so much for this link, it's one that I hadn't seen for Rodchenko!

They're beautiful, no doubt. But sterile. Cold. Emotionless. The degree to which they excell in form detaches them from reality. Though they lack in realism and are contrived, I still love them.

Wonderful collection Miguel - and thanks for the Gallery link - you're right, that is a keeper!
