Further Biographical Context for Algirdas Kurauskas
Born in 1923, Algirdas Kurauskas' creative work was predominantly inspired by the 1930s. On a global scale this period can be best characterised by the duelling of the world’s predominant political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era assumed a sinister turn with the dawn of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would conclude in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social uproar that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the world’s population.
