News from Berlin - “Kasimir Malevich and the Russian Avant-garde” is the name of the exhibition that opened its door to the visitors on March 8th in Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn, Germany. Malevich is a prominent Russian painter and art theoretician whose contribution to the 20th century art is invaluable. It is important to mention that Malevich worked during the years of World War I which allowed him to view the events he portrayed and the Russian avant-garde in general through the prism of that historical epoch. Painting of such famous artists as Marc Chagall, Natalia Goncharova, Vasily Kandinsky, Vladimir Tatlin are also on display. The Russian Museum, the first state museum of fine arts in Russia, gave 18 canvases for the exposition which is also significant because it takes place on the eve of the 100 year anniversary of the beginning of the World War I which, according to Vladimir Grinin, the Russian Ambassador to Germany, demonstrates a great amount of work that the Russian and German nations have done to come closer together and develop mutual understanding considering the long and complicated history of the relationship of the two countries. Ambassador noted that the exposition represents a unique opportunity for the public to know more about each other’s rich culture and heritage. Remarkably, this exhibition is merely one among many other events and is also an illustration of the high level of cooperation that Germany and Russia have achieved in the cultural and humanitarian spheres.  Thus, in a way, the exposition became the opening for the coming Cross Year 2014-2015, which will be a year of the German language and literature in Russia and the Russian language and literature in Germany.

The exhibition is open March 08, 2014 – June 22, 2014.
