‘We don’t see, what we observe. We don’t see, what we look at. We don’t see the extraordinary perspectives and the shortenings of objects. We, who have been taught to see ordinary and educated, we need to rediscover the world of visibility. We need to revolutionise our optical cognition. We need to tear off the veil in front of our eyes, which is called from the navel’.’

Alexander Rodchenko, 18th of August in 1928  (eight months after Lenin’s death)


Alexander Rodchenko, The writer Elsa Triolet (sister of Lily Brik), 1924
Alexander Rodchenko, Portrait of Vladimir Mayakovsky, 1924



Mayakovsky arrived in the late afternoon, when there was little light, which is why the shot was taken outdoors. Kotik the dog, who loved ice-cream, had eaten everything that Mayakovsky had bought, which is why the poet is holding him in his arms like a baby. Mayakovsky easily identified with dogs. His nickname was "Shchen" ("little dog"), which is how he signed letters and telegrams'
