Exhibitions such as these have elevated Khidekel’s international stature in the twenty years since Khidekel’s Suprematist works were first shown to the public in “The Great Utopia: The Russian and Soviet Avant-garde 1915 – 1932” (1992) at the Guggenheim Museum, New York, followed by their display in “Europa, Europa,” the landmark 1994 exhibition at the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Bonn, and the major 1995 Malevich retrospective at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne. Yet, perhaps even more important, his legacy has been recognized by a younger generation of artists as an infinite source of ideas and inspiration. Mikhail Karasik’s book “Ommazh Khidekeliu” (Homage to Khidekel) is one such artist’s tribute to Khidekel’s influence.
