Suprematism Vs Nihilism

Satisfactory Essays
Suprematism seemed to embrace the theological elements of art. They felt that to create was close to divinity. By focusing on geometrical shapes, they released themselves from the confines of realism and could induce the transcendental experience creating art evoked. But not without it’s dangers, of course, I believe this movement was criticized for be nihilistic and one critic (Benois?) called it the “sermon (<——allusion to theology) of nothingness and destruction.” Suprematism bordered on the mystic and challenged reality by observing the purity of form.

Constructivism, on the other hand, was deeply rooted in industrial design. It was call to artist to stop producing useless things and create for industry and socio-political causations.
