Eliezer (Lazar) Markovič Lisickij (Počinok, Smolensk, Russia, 1890 - Moscow, 1941), called El Lissitzky, was one of the most influential, experimental and controversial artists of the early 20th century.
Creative and innovative, he aspired to blend countries and cultures, art and design, West and East in his work. For him, art was a heterogenous process of research, within which he constantly built up links between different disciplines: architecture, construction, design, graphic design, illustration.
El Lissitzky. The experience of totality” intends to investigate the development of the artist’s activity through all the languages adopted to build a new, collective and revolutionary art, presenting paintings, printing projects, book and magazine illustrations, architectural studies, photographs, photo-montages and photographs like “Runner in the city” of 1926 and the iconic self-portrait known as “The builder” of 1924.
