Information

Editor: Detlef Martins, Michael W.Jennings
‘The journal G appeared between 1923 and 1926 and featured a unique combination of visual works and writings by some of the most important names in European art and design. The list of contributors to the magazine during its short life reads like a roll-call of the avant- garde: it included Hans Arp, Walter Benjamin, Theo van Doesburg, Naum Gabo, George Grosz, Raoul Hausmann, El Lissitzky, Man Ray, Hans Richter, Mies van der Rohe and Tristan Tzara. What this disparate group had in common was a belief in Gestaltung, or ‘elemental form-creation’, that placed emphasis on the process and the materials through which cultural objects are produced rather than on any ‘ism’, style or form. In G, works of engineering, technology and popular culture took their place alongside paintings, films, poems and sculptures, creating a complex and vivid image of urban modernity.’
