  • Catalogue Essay

    An acronym in Russian for the Higher State Artistic and Technical Institute established in 1920, VKhUTEMAS was the Russian equivalent of the Bauhaus; Moholy-Nagy, Kandinsky and Lissitzky were the conduits for the affinities shared by the two schools. Like the German school, VKhUTEMAS included departments of architecture, printing, typography, graphic arts, posters, furniture making and techniques of materials.
