The exhibition Circles of Interference, a collaborative effort between Marinko Sudac Collection, Kassak Museum and the Institute for the Research of the Avant-garde, is based on the exchange and cooperative work between the editors of the avant-garde periodicals MA and Zenit, two that were among the most influential in the region at the beginning of the 1920's.
The exhibition covers the issues of networking and expansion of the avant-garde movement and the aesthetic of Constructivism that, in between the two wars, had a strong and productive impact on the cultural life of the region. The artworks displayed and the documentation as a whole were selected from the permanent body of works from the Collection.
The intention was to reveal the high artistic level of a neglected legacy of historical avant-garde movements to the public and critical eye and to place emphasis on the so far insufficiently recognized channels through which radical artistic practice and aesthetics of the constructivists has grown to become a decisive influence on the art practices from the second half of the 20th century.
