When the Nazis rose to power in Europe during the 1930s, Modernist experiments were denounced, and many artists, architects, and designers immigrated to the United States.

Explore the modern age of design in this Bibliotheca Universalis edition of the 20th century’s key movements and trends. As a leading authority of the history, theory, and criticism of design, she has written and edited nearly 70 books on all aspects of design—from physical products and transportation to visual communications and the digital realm—which have been translated into over 20 languages. In the title page to one poem, Lissitzky used a large red circle to signify the sun, the subject of the poem. The curator-authors have made perfect, compact sense of a freewheeling century and the figures who defined its styles.
