AVANT-GARDE – FROM THE DYNAMIC OF MOVEMENT TO A NEW NARRATION IN URBAN SPACE
The avant-garde ideas of the 1920s brought about a radical re-evaluation in visual arts. The scholarly approach to art was rejected, together with linear perspective. The idea of grand cities, no longer glorified, was soon replaced by an apotheosis of new man, yet understood as a community – a society of change. The gravity of spatial hierarchy which had hitherto given context and coherence to a scene was transferred to a single object. On its basis people started to look for a post-cubist synthesis. But the limit of abstraction, as it turns out, was to this day never crossed.
Key words: theory of space, 20th century architecture, contemporary urban planning, urban narration, cubo-futurism, avant-garde of the 1920s.
