Impossible Histories

Impossible Histories

Uploaded by: Gábor DOBÓ (OAD Editor), 26/01/2015


Date of publication: 2006

"Impossible Histories is the first critical survey of the extraordinary experiments in the arts that took place in the former Yugoslavia from the country's founding in 1918 to its breakup in 1991. The combination of Austro-Hungarian, French, German, Italian, and Turkish influences gave Yugoslavia's avant-gardes a distinct character unlike those of other Eastern and Central European avant-gardes. Censorship and suppression kept much of the work far from the eyes and ears of the Yugoslav people, while language barriers and the inaccessibility of archives caused it to remain largely unknown to Western scholars. Even at this late stage in the scholarly investigation of the avant-garde, few Westerners have heard of the movements Belgrade surrealism, signalism, Yugo-Dada, and zenitism; the groups Alfa, Exat 51, Gorgona, OHO, and Scipion Nasice Sisters Theater; or the magazines Danas, Red Pilot, Tank, Vecnost, and Zvrk."

The exhibition Circles of Interference, a collaborative effort between Collection Marinko Sudac, Kassak Museum and Institute for the Research of the Avant-garde, is based on the exchange and cooperative work between the editors of the avant-garde periodicals MA and Zenit, two that were among the most influential in the region at the beginning of the 1920's. The exhibition covers the issues of networking and expansion of the avant-garde movement and the esthetic of Constructivism that, in between the two wars, had a strong and productive impact on the cultural life of the region. The artworks displayed and the documentation as a whole were selected from the permanent body of works from the Collection. The intention was to reveal the high artistic level of a neglected legacy of historical avant-garde movements to the public and critical eye and to place emphasis on the so far insufficiently recognized channels through witch radical artistic practice and esthetics of the constructivists has grown to become a decisive influence on the art practices from the second half of the 20th century.

Date of publication: 1996

Eastern Dada Orbit is composed of two distinct parts and describes two largely unexplored aspects of Dada. The first, Dada in Central and Eastern Europe (including the former Soviet Union), edited by Gerald Janecek, was a previously closed field that scholars have since discovered reveals the significant influence of Dada on the region. The second part of this volume, Tada=Dada (Devotedly Dada) for the Stage: The Japanese Dada Movement 1920-1925, focuses upon the equally under researched area of Dada in Japan. Toshiharu Omuka traces the particular place of Dada within the dynamic development of Japanese modernism.

The Circle of New Advertising Designers (ring neue werbegestalter) was a group who coalesced after the first statements on the new typography by Tschchold and Moholy-Nagy, and their purpose was the promotion of a common vision of the avant-garde. Ring neue werbegestalter intentionally echoed the name of The Ring, a group of Berlin-based architects which had been formed a few years earlier. The idea came from Kurt Schwitters and was trumpeted in a 1928 issue of Das Kunstblatt: " A group of nine artists active as advertising designers has formed under the presidency of Kurt Schwitters. Baumeister, Burchatz, Dexel, Domela, Michel, Schwitters,Trump, Tschichold andVordemberge-Gildewart belong to the association."
