Glasses Case and Cleaning Cloth: Wassily Kandinsky, Molle Russe
Kandinsky spans not only his home country Russia, then the place where he trained and studied, Munich, but also France where after the persecution by the Nazis, he settled. He was both an academic and also a practicing artist. In his academic interests, he explored mysticism, spiritualism and tried to develop a form of abstract art that was not interested in pulling forms and colours away, but to get deeper insights into things, forms and structures. For him, the reality was neither the visual surface, nor the kind of reception it made, but he wanted to draw the viewer deeper into the objects, lead the eye and show it a way to a different reality that he saw laying underneath and within. These were theories that he developed and on what he published, taught at the Bauhaus at Weimar, and also produced wonderful art works himself.
Molle Russe (1927)
is one of the examples that draw the viewer into a different world sphere. Hard and soft are contrasts, but the way in which he brings them together shows that the world is more than opposites.
