Announcing the project, Worlds of El Lissitzky, we’re not going to engage to the «museumification» his legacy. El Lissitzky is not a «dead classic,» to be deposited in the archives, but a living figure, whose source of ideas and new approaches not only influence art but also the NEW building of life. The avant-garde ideology, has focus on the future, today is more important than ever. For Novosibirsk, for Siberia, and for Russia as a whole.
In Russia there are no monuments either to the Russian avant-garde movement or to Russian avant-gardist. That is why this project is unique. The realization of this project will be significant for the city and Russia. And it will underline the importance of Novosibirsk as one of the centers of Russian constructivist architecture.
