The exhibition In Search of 0,10 – The Last Futurist Exhibition of Painting at Fondation Beyeler celebrates the centenary of the legendary group show The Last Futurist Exhibition of Painting 0,10 (Zero-Ten) that took place in Petrograd (today St. Petersburg) in Russia. It’s the result of many years of research an reunites most of the surviving works of the legendary group show, complemented by others dating from the same period. 0,10 is considered as one of the most influential exhibitions in the history of modern art. It was here that Kasimir Malevich first presented his Black Square, an icon of abstract art. In the same exhibition, Vladimir Tatlin installed his revolutionary Corner Counter-Relief for the first time. 14 artists – seven men and seven women – participated in the show: Natan Altman, Xenia Boguslawskaja, Wassili Kamenski, Anna Kirillowa, Iwan Kljun, Kasimir Malewitsch, Michail Menkow, Vera Pestel, Ljubow Popowa, Iwan Puni, Olga Rosanowa, Wladimir Tatlin, Nadeschda Udalzowa, and Marie Vassilieff. The critical reconstruction of the historical exhibition includes loans from the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, 17 other Russian Museums, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, and MoMA in New York.
