Note from Nettie: If you don't know anything about Tatlin's Tower, check it out on Wikipedia: "Tatlin's Tower was a grand monumental building envisioned and blueprinted by the Russian artist and architect Vladmir Tatlin, but never built." It is one SUPER looking work, designed to be built from iron, glass and steel and would have dwarfed the Eiffel tower In this small tome from Svetlana Boym, she provides a richly imaginative exploration of the legacy of Tatlin's Tower, one of the iconic works of Russian Constructivism, from its original reception in the early 1920s to its ongoing reinterpreation by Soviet and international artists and architects over the course of the 20th C and beyond. Offers an alternative history of modernist culture that crosses boundaries between architecture, technology, history, and aesthetics and should appeal to a sophisticated readership. Includes illustrations of Tatlin's work and its historical conext, and of recent works by a variety of artists including Ilya Kabokov, Komar and Melamid, Gordon Matta-Clark, and Jane and Louise Wilson. A part of the FORuM Project Publication series published in association with the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture at Columbia University.
