El Lissitzki’s poster -„Bit the Whites with the Red Wedge” is a synthesis of constructivist and suprematist presumptions.
In the same way, the visual solution of a poster shows red and green wedges forming a letter “A” presenting national colours of Hungary as well.
The accent is on capital letters M and A representing a parallel to avant-garde magazine MA – Magyar Aktivismus. Similar, but different, elements can be found in Lajos Kassak and Sandor Bortnyk’s graphics from the same period, therefore, the poster creates new cubistic interpretation.
The exhibits are a part of rich holdings of Modern Gallery of Janus Pannonius Museum in Pecs. The exhibition covers the events from 1906 till 1931 stressing the avant-garde expression in the period 1915 to 1930.
It shows different phenomena of Hungarian modern art: post-impressionism, fauvism, expressionism, cubism, cubo-futurism – constructivism in works of art of founders of modern Hungarian art. The selection of works of art is defined by the concept of avant-garde in historical sense.
