Mieczysław Szczuka (1898 – 1927) was a Polish avant-garde artist, constructivist and productivist. In 1924 co-founds the artistic group ‘Blok’ (Blok Group of Cubists, Constructivists and Suprematists) with Henryk Stażewski, Władysław Strzemiński, Teresa Żarnowerówna among others and they publish the ‘Blok’ magazine. Mieczysław Szczuka was interested in the social functions of art and the utilitarianist ideas deriving from Constructivism, rather that formalism and the aesthetic experience. In 1927 he begins to publish the ‘Dźwignia’ magazine which is supported by the Polish Communist Party.
