In his Meta-Constructivism poster series, Anton Ginzburg casts a contemporary glance at the idealistic pursuits of the Russian revolution, invoking the graphic language of Constructivism to which they have become inextricably linked. The posters on view are part of Ginzburg’s larger project, entitled Blue Flame: Constructions and Initiatives, in which the artist put himself through the study course of Vkhutemas (Higher State Artistic and Technical Studios), the most progressive school in Moscow in the 1920s. His goal was to internalize the methods and experience of Soviet Constructivist and Productivist artists and to translate them for a contemporary context, but also to signal the end of this period of high modernist aspirations.
