This article offers information regarding the lecture of Vasilii Kandinsky entitled "On a Method for Working with Synthetic Art." The lecture summarizes the research that the artist had conducted and anticipates the future lines of development at RAKhN. Kandinsky perceived the activities of the Monumental Art Section at INKhUK and those of the Central Art Committee of Narkompros as a continuum. It aims to resolve problems of general aesthetics, the study of elements and the social nature of art, and questions of the synthesis and the interrelationship of the arts.
