about constructivism

"For the kind of art into which my work falls, there are many terms:

Geometric Art, Geometric-Abstract Art, Concrete Art, Constructive Art, Reductive Art. But let's not forget the term constructivism*. Art historians call it a twentieth century art movement. But I would say that it was not only a movement, but a beginning of the recognition of the way art and the development of technology are inseparable. New terminology may help distinguish between differing approaches to the construction of our works. But I am never ashamed of using the term to refer to contemporary works based on the universal principles laid down by the pioneers of the concept which art historians only identify as a movement at the beginning of the twentieth century. But movement is motion; as long a we are its motor, it will continue.

*from Wikipedia: “The term Construction Art was first used as a derisive term by Kazimir Malevich to describe the work of Alexander Rodchenko in 1917. Constructivism first appears as a positive term in Naum Gabo's Realistic Manifesto of 1920. Alexei Gan used the word as the title of his book Constructivism, which was printed in 1922.”
