Above and below images by Kasimir Malevich, a suprematist, produced in the early twentieth Century. These are 'expressive' costume design, the influences are possibly derived from Bauhaus, modernist notions of form following function but also relate to his ideas about abstraction and plasticism.
Some avant garde costume designed by Oscar Schlemmer [whilst at the Bauhaus] for a performance of the Triadic ballet. Schlemmer was interested in the relationship between form and movement and produced costume that described the relationship between body and space. And here it is being performed.
