Constructivism

Suprematism  led on to Constructivism, which was founded in Moscow by Alesandr Rodchenko in 1913. This movement was inspired by the political egalitarianism of the Russian proletariate and used its influence to promote the values of the revolution, through propaganda and agitation.

One of the most well-mown and prolific artist members of this group was El Lissitzky. Below is one of his most famous posters, which used photomontage and emphasised youthfulness.
