The interdisciplinary nature of Russian contructivism

Russian constructivism is an art movement from 1919 onwards that incorporated fine arts, architecture, poster design and many other aspects of design. Constructivist artists rejected the idea that art should be for social purposes, i.e. propaganda. Constructivism was a movement that incorporated both fine arts and design, bridging the gap between the two. Russian constructivism had a true interdisciplinary nature.
