Inspiration of the day - Alexander Rodchenko and the Russian Avant-garde

Alexander Rodchenko, the Russian avant-garde artist, abandoned painting in the early 1920s in favour of photography which he believed would better express the new visual and social realities emerging at that time. His experiments in photography and photo-collage influenced artists and photographers throughout the 20th century. This film by Michael Craig of Copernicus Films is a compilation of extracts from a larger documentary film about Rodchenko's search for new visual frontiers. It is part of a series of four documentaries about the Russian avant-garde.
