An art movement founded by Kazemir Malevich in Russia around 1913, based on the supremacy of an abstract art that celebrates pure artistic feeling rather than the representation of things. Geometry was the language of suprematism, which favored the circle and the square. Malevich's White on White (1918) and Black Square are illustrative.
Constructivism was an art movement that saw the artist in service of the nation and state. Arising during the Russian revolutionary period, when the old order was being swept away, Constructivism viewed the role of the artist to be that of social engineer, to be a leading light for the largely illiterate Russian populous.
