Description: Klucis made this maquette, or model, as a design for a “radio-announcer”-a street-based loudspeaker-to be placed at city intersections, where it was to broadcast a speech by Lenin on the fifth anniversary of the Russian Revolution. An architecture of struts and cables supports geometric panels and gaily painted loudspeakers. The work clearly announces its purpose: the name “Lenin” appears in large red letters on an arrangement of vanes.
