9780745399454: Art and Production

Now nearly a century since it was first published in 1926, Boris Arvatov’s Art and Production remains a classic text of the early Soviet avant-garde. This is the first English edition of this influential work—a crucial intervention for those seeking to understand the social dynamic of art and revolution during the period. Derived from the internal struggles of Soviet constructivism, Arvatov’s writing played a major role in the split that occurred in the constructivist movement of the early 1920s—Productivism. Arvatov acknowledges the problems of a factory-based Productivism, and he presents a new role and function for art outside the conventional studio and traditional gallery setting. Dealing with issues such as artistic versus productive labor, the artist as technician, the multidisciplinarity of art, and the struggles of finding new relevance amidst the contemporary participatory art trend, Art and Production offers a timely and compelling manifesto for contemporary debates on art and politics.

About the Author:

Boris Arvatov (1896-1940) was a leading theorist in the post-revolutionary Soviet avant garde. He critiqued art, literature and film, and was one of the founding members of the influential Left Front of the Arts journal. John Roberts is professor of art and aesthetics at the University of Wolverhampton, in England. He is the author of a number of books, including Philosophising the Everyday, also published by Pluto Press.
 

Review:

"A passionate proclamation of the sovereign right of art to give a form not only to the artworks but also to society, state and everyday life of the people. Today’s art tends to neglect this right—and that is why Arvatov’s text is so relevant for our time." (Boris Groys, New York University)

“The appearance of an English translation of Arvatov's 1926 book Art and Production, one of the key statements of Soviet contructivism, is long overdue and will be welcomed by all those interested in the relationship between art, politics and social change. Sandwiched between John Roberts's engaging and informative introduction and Alexei Penzin's erudite and stimulating afterword, Arvatov's text reveals the profundity of early Soviet engagements with the transformations of the role of art and of the artist in conditions of revolutionary change and industrial development. The text is much more than a historical curiosity, however, for it explores some of the questions we are still grappling with, such as the relation between cultural production and mass communication, fine and applied arts and the capacity of art to act as a base for the revolutionising of social consciousness. The appearance of this text both in its original Russian, and in subsequent translations, has inspired many new engagements that have renewed consideration of the central questions of artistic production. There is little doubt that its appearance in English in the centenary year of the Russian Revolution will once again arouse considerable interest and inspire new work on the subject.” (Craig Brandist, University of Sheffield)

Book Description PLUTO PRESS, United Kingdom, 2017. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Boris Arvatov s Art and Production is a classic of the early Soviet avant-garde. Now nearing a century since its first publication, it is a crucial intervention for those seeking to understand the social dynamic of art and revolution during the period.Derived from the internal struggles of Soviet Constructivism, as it confronted the massive problems of cultural transformation after `War Communism , Arvatov s writing is a major force in the split that occurred in the revolutionary horizons of Constructivism in the early 1920s. Critical of early Constructivism s social-aesthetic process of art s transformation of daily life - epitomised in studio-based painting, photography and object making - Arvatov polemicises for the devolution of artistic skills directly into the relations of production and the factory.Whilst acknowledging the problems of a pure factory-based Productivism, Arvatov remains overwhelmingly committed to a new role and function for art outside the conventional studio and traditional gallery. Addressing issues such as artistic labour and productive labour, the artist as technician, art and multidisciplinarity and a life for art beyond `art - finding new relevance amidst the extensive social turn of contemporary participatory art - Art and Production offers a timely and compelling manifesto.
