Agitprop Panel (1920)
Like many other artists who supported the Bolshevik coup of October
1917, Lissitsky actively attempted to advance the ideas of the
state by bringing his art to the masses. This propaganda, or agitational
(agit-prop) panel was photographed on a street in Vitebsk in 1920.
The inscription on the panel reads "The Machine tool depots of
the factories and plants await you. Let's get industry moving."
