Abstract

KONSTANTIN K. KUZMINSKY (Austin, Texas, U.S.A.) Lev Voldemarovich Nussberg, artist, architect, designer, and poet, was born in Moscow in 1938 of a German father and a Tatar mother. After receiv- ing his education in Moscow as an architect and designer, Nussberg founded the group of kinetic artists known as Dvizhenie in 1962. This collective of experimental artists which changed its composition constantly until Nussberg's emigration from the Soviet Union in 1976, became known for its kinetic spectacles, movies, architectural projects, and theoretical systems. While the collective sometimes fulfilled government commissions, e.g., for decorating Leningrad in connection with the fiftieth anniversary of the Bolshevik Rev- olution and for designing scientific exhibitions, Nussberg and his colleagues always pursued their own experimental and often provocative artistic interests. The distinctive and imaginative ideas devised by the Dvizhenie collective found their expression in a variety of projects such as the total environment model for the Little Eagle Pioneer Camp in the Crimea and several kinetic and conceptual movies. Many of the original members of the collective- Galina Bitt, Pavel Burdiukov, Nussberg, etc.-now live in the West. During its life, the Dvizhenie collective received extensive publicity both in the West and in the Soviet Union. The most comprehensive sources of information on Nussberg and Dvizhenie are: Lew Nussberg und die Gruppe Bewegung. Moskau 1962-1977. Catalog of exhibition at the Museum Bochum, W.
