Art Deco. Poetics of Poison

  • Petr Kapustin Voronezh State Technical University

Abstract

The many-sidedness of the Art Deco phenomenon attracts more and more attention. The term itself is polemical, as well as its analogues, the acceptable extension of the “range” of this style, its extension to phenomena and monuments of different years and regions. The author tries to introduce readers to the atmosphere of Art Deco in its “core” manifestations, first of all, in the American architecture and design of the 1920-1940s. As the author believes, without such exposure, we can understand neither the meaning of the phenomenon, nor its lessons for our time, which is increasingly tending to something like this.
