3/8/16 Modern Art History Vladimir Tatlin Selection of Materials: Iron, Stucco, Glass, Asphalt 1914  In order to create a new kind of art for a new kind of society to replace a regime of imperial Russia. To rip away all the extra feelings and attitudes of art and what would remain is the true material and nature of the work.  The piece is about the actual material itself. Not meant to have any subjective or emotional meaning to it.  The material dictates the form. Make it arbitrary. Vladimir Tatlin Corner Relief 1915 Iron, aluminum, primer (destroyed)  Sculpture in the sense of being 3 dimensional. Not sculpture in any normal sense. Not carved, but it is somewhat like a painting in the sense that it is hung on the wall.  Its art but it’s not art, it is part of the space and they are Constructions. Constructions Not “compositions”  Objective nature  Material nature  Strength Karl Marx  Capitalists system was exploited, the workers would take over  The communist party would rule over the workers. Freedom and Democracy needed to come to the whole world. Vladimir Tatlin Model for Monument to the Third International 1919-1920 Wood  Bold and visionary plan possibly inspired by the Eiffel tower in Paris.  Government of Russia was debating bringing electricity to the country.  20ft high model for a 1300ft structure.  Based in time and symbolic nature. The world ruled by center of enlightened power.  Constructivists work.  Visual language of structure. Obmokhu Constructivist Exhibition Aleksandr Rodchenko Oval Hanging Construction No. 12 1920 Plywood, aluminum paint, wire Marcel Duchamp 1887-1968 Chocolate Grinder 1911  What makes a work of Art?  What nominates it as a work of Art? Kinds of questions Duchamp forces us to answer.  Diagrams of mechanical objects. Something in mechanical nature separates from human nature. Marcel Duchamp Bicycle Wheel 1963 replica of 1913 original  Readymade works of art. Marcel Duchamp The Urinal Porcelain Urinal  Was denied and Duchamp quit.  Created a fuss at the time.  They accepted all other artists and they denied Duchamp’s.  He created a new thought for the object.  About the institutional structure. They said this piece was not art. They are being contradictory to the rules.  Mass production and assembly lines. In the future everything would be made by machines.  What makes a work of art is not so much the maker but rather the viewer.
