The title of a magazine founded by Hans Richter in Berlin in 1923 with the intention of making it ‘the organ of the Constructivists in Europe’. There were six issues before it folded in 1926. Lissitsky, who had himself published a short-lived Constructivist journal called Vesch, suggested the single-letter title: ‘G’ stands for ‘Gestaltung’ (Formation). Contributors to the magazine included Arp, van Doesburg, Hausmann, Man Ray, and Schwitters.
