It led to the first Cubo-Futurist performance piece-Victory Over the Sun-in 1913, and, in general, their correspondence during this period is the best, and really the only, record we have of the mysterious process that led to the appearance of the Black Square and Malevich' s revolutionary geometric Suprematism.
