A bizarre discovery leads to this film about the founder of abstract art. In early September, Malevich's grave is discovered in Moscow, at a building site for luxury apartments. Stedelijk has commissioned Robbie Schweiger (student Russian and art history) and filmmaker Jeroen van der Poel to travel to Russia and Belarus, in search of Malevich's meaning for today's Russians. Is he still appreciated as an artist? How do we honor Malevich?
