Un’arte per gli ebrei, un’arte per il mondo. Le strade di El Lissitzky e Moyshe Broderzon

An Art for the Jews, an Art for the World. The paths of El Lissitzky and Moyshe Broderzon

ABSTRACT. For a short but fertile period, the paths of the two extraordinary artists El Lissitzky (1890-1941) and Moyshe Broderzon (1890-1956) intersected and gave rise to important artistic projects. Both authors shared the ideal projects of the Bund, and in particular the affirmation of the cultural autonomy of Jews in their countries of residence. Their choices then diverged: Lissitzky became one of the most distinguished coryphaei of Suprematism and Soviet art; Broderzon, on the other hand, remained faithful to the project of creating a new Jewish art directed towards a Jewish audience. Their story is told against the backdrop of Jewish participation in the Central-Eastern European avant-garde.
