The Machine as a Code of the New Political and Social Order in the Artistic Avant-gardes in Western Europe and Russia after the First World War

Project description

A 'machine' perspective of social issues

The ‘machine’ can be considered as the subject of a discussion about the transition from an individualistic to a collective vision of people and their social order and organisation. In this context, the EU-funded MWER project will study the interconnections and circulation between different artistic avant-gardes in Europe, especially in Western Europe and Russia, after the First World War and the revolutions of 1917–1923. The focus will be on the insufficiently studied connections between artistic theory and practice, and the visions of political and social reorganisation after the First World War and the revolutions, which resulted from references to the machine. It will also analyse the wider impact of scientific management and social, economic and management theory.
