Through the international exhibition Lissitzky – Kabakov, Utopia and Reality the Van Abbemuseum brought the oeuvres of renowned Russian artists, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov and El Lissitzky together for the first time. Following on from the Van Abbemuseum it could be seen in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg and the Multimedia Art Museum (MAMM) in Moscow. Ammodo supports Lissitzky – Kabakov, Utopia and Reality to bring the early Soviet avant-garde art and the art that emerged at the end of the Soviet era to a larger public audience and to help stimulate new insights in the discourse concerning art history in the twenty-first century.
