Marc Chagall was born in Vitebsk and invited Kazimir Malevich to teach there. In 20-e years of the last century Vitebsk became the city of the future: for the holidays local artists from Malevich created the UNOVIS Association (Founders of New Art) was painted trams, shops, coffee shops, libraries, facades of buildings and even a podium for speakers. Worked in the style of Suprematism, when artists moved on to the simple forms, and instead of landscapes and portraits was depicted as colored circles and squares.

Malevich was so fascinated by the ideas of UNOVIS that named her daughter Una.

Malevich formed the UNOVIS, the disciples (Chagall made so that learning could do everything, including poor people) loved him, thought Suprematism highest point of the development of art and the work of Chagall – compared to him obsolete.

In 1920 offended Chagall left Vitebsk: “Once, when I once again went to get school bread, paint and money, my teacher raised a rebellion, which dragged and students. Forgive them Lord”). Malevich continued to develop Suprematism in Vitebsk, has not yet gone to Petrograd in 1922.

– I am happy that the theme of the new series of the project “the Tretyakov gallery with…” became a Russian avant-garde, which for many is still a kind of terra incognita, – said Zelfira Tregulova, a graduate of the Belarusian of the order of Francis Skaryna. – The public is difficult to tune in to the right wave, to perceive this art as a reflection of reality, and to realize that it has a whole new world, new world – Outlook of the twentieth century. It was very interesting to work with Khabensky. Our dialogue was constructed as a conversation between two people with different points of view. Constantine asked questions, expressed disagreement, and I talked about how I and my colleagues perceived Russian avant-garde”.
