Example text

Foster’s Hans Richter: Activism, Modernism and the Avant-garde, and a statement of what were likely some of its central ideas appears in Eggeling’s hardly known essay of 1921, Elvi fejtegetések a mozgómüvészetrö (Theoretical Presentation of the Art of Motion), and Richter’s much better known, and nearly identical, essay of the same year, Prinzipielles zur Bewegungskunst (Principles of Movement Art). The purpose of Eggeling and Richter’s study into the Generalbaß der Malerei was to present the ground principles of Gestaltung (‘forming’).

Eggeling and Richter’s goal was to develop a system of communication based on the visual perceptions, whose mechanisms, they were convinced, were universal. “Every person would have to react to such a language for the very reason that it was based on the human ability to see and record”, Richter wrote. (Richter 1965b: 24) Some years after the pamphlet was issued, Richter outlined the thesis of the Universelle Sprache: This pamphlet elaborated our thesis that abstract form offers the possibility of a language above and beyond all national language frontiers.

Ten minutes later, Eggeling showed me some of his work. Our complete agreement on esthetic as well as on philosophical matters, a kind of ‘enthusiastic identity’ between us, led spontaneously to an intensive collaboration, and a friendship which lasted until his death in 1925. […] Eggeling’s dynamics of counterpoint, which he called Generalbaß der Malerei, embraced generously and without discrimination every possible relationship between forms, including that of the horizontal to the vertical. His approach, methodical to the degree of being scientific, led him to the analytical study of the behaviour of elements of form under different conditions.
