Kruchenykh developed the transrational language "zaum" in his highly experimental poetry. Kliun was an important Russian avant-garde painter and teacher who worked for Narkompros and VKhUTEMAS. I. Terentiev was another Futurist poet who helped Kruchenykh found the 41° group in Tiflis; but by 1930, he had turned to the theater. He was arrested in 1931 as an enemy of the people and was eventually executed.
