Highly influenced by constructivism and a strong advocate of the integration of technology and industry into the arts, #7 from Edition NIkO, "Moholism". Constructivism was an artistic and architectural movement that originated in Russia from 1919 onward which rejected the idea of "art for art's sake" in favour of art as a practice directed towards social purposes. This album contains 8 artists from Tokyo, Kanagawa, Fukuoka, and from Russia, with 7 tracks inspired by Constructivist Graphic Design, like Rodchenko, El Lissitzky, and strongly inspired by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. The word "Moholism" was made up by shotahirama using this great german-constructivists. Those Constructivists were early pioneers of the techniques of photomontage. Which is one of most important method for us (Edition NIkO). Using Max Bill art design (Swiss architect, artist, painter, typeface designer, industrial designer and graphic designer), we are proud to announce this 7th release from label, and this will be the 1st music album for Constructivism!
