Kobro and Strzemiński

Avant-Garde Prototypes

Authors Jarosław Suchan, Christina Lodder, Gladys C. Fabre, Juan Manuel Bonet. And texts by Kobro and Strzemiński

Kataryna Kobro (1898-1951) and Władysław Strzemiński (1893-1952) are among the silent protagonists of the European avant-gardes, to which they contributed by both fostering and questioning the legacy of modernism with a plastic and theoretical oeuvre that was fertile as it was complex. Dedicated to experimentation on pure forms-Kobro fundamentally in sculpture and Strzemiński in painting- and closely related to international artistic movements like the Bauhaus, neoplasticism and constructivism, their work is pivotal for an understanding of abstract art in the Central Europe of the first decades of the twentieth century.
