Kazimir Malevich
Achim Borchardt-Hume, Director of Exhibitions at Tate Modern, talks about the work of Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935). His presentation focuses on the artist’s most iconic painting: his Black Square of 1915 (first version), which Borchardt-Hume defines as the “zero hour” of modern art for several artists and an important artifact in the process of art history.

This video also journeys through Malevich’s earlier works; the years after 1915, with his abstract oeuvre; and his later production, imbued with social content and influenced by the times in Europe and Stalin’s censorship of the artistic avant-garde in the USSR. In this late period, Malevich moved away from abstraction, and his art explored the ideas of progress and modernization.
