It was led by artists Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova. They broke away from another group known as the Jack of Diamonds. They accused them of ‘copying the French’ and being too influenced by Western painting. Instead, they thought art should respond to Russian tradition. These included the lubok (a type of wood-engraving) and the religious icon.</p><p><br></p><p>Their name was based on a famous art prank which happened in Paris in 1905. A painting (made by tying a brush to a donkey’s tail) was included in an exhibition, without criticism. Their name was a way of making fun of art critics.</p><p><br></p><p>They painted for the Russian public. They painted brightly coloured scenes of everyday Russian life - including portraits and scenes of soldiers, hairdressers and prostitutes, all in a flat style. Their style and their first exhibition in 1912 received a lot of criticism. Goncharova was targeting the most, mainly for being a woman. The Conservative press described them as ‘extreme left-wing representatives of contemporary art’&nbsp;</p></p></section><section><h3><p>You belong to... the Hackney Flashers!</p></h3><p><p>Like the Hackney Flashers, you are playful, care a lot about society and love a good pun.</p><p><br></p><p>The Hackney Flashers was a feminist arts collective active between 1974 and 1980. Most of the group were photographers, but they included a cartoonist, a graphic designer and a writer. Their work focused on Hackney, East London, one of London’s poorest areas at the time. Their name was a playful pun on the flash of the camera. Graffiti and collage were also mediums they used.&nbsp;</p><p><br></p><p>They made work to educate others on social and feminist issues. This including using stats to expose pay differences between male and female workers. Instead of doing artist talks, they hosted events and talks on issues like the lack of childcare facilities. Their work and approaches received some criticism. The Hayward gallery considered these events 'vulgar and intrusive'.</p><p><br></p><p>They believed art should be shown where everyone could see it such as in classrooms, health centres and libraries. Do you agree?</p><p><br></p></p></section><section><h3><p>The Ancients</p></h3></section><section><h3><p>Black Audio Film Collective</p></h3></section><section><h2><p>Artists should be ...&nbsp;</p></h2></section><section><h3><p>How would you go about making change?&nbsp;</p></h3></section><section><h3><p>I want a collective name which ...</p></h3></section><section><h3><p>Which image are you drawn to the most?</p></h3></section><section><h3><p>What motivates you?</p></h3></section><section><h3><p>Your critics might describe you as ...</p></h3></section><section><h3><p>What frustrates you the most?</p></h3></section><section><h3><p>Where do you think art should be shown?</p></h3></section></iframe> </div>
