Examined is the theme of Russian constructivism and formalism. The main idea of the article is, that ideas of such were felt, expressed and formulated at the dawn of the 20th century, formed the entire content and foundation of post-modernism. Having become the worldview of the masses, post-modernism does not leave themes and clichés that were set at the beginning of the century. As always and everywhere, the main trends arise immediately and entirely. So, at the beginning of the 20th century the problem field of the epoch was outlined, i.e. the foundation of phonology was formed, interest in the “fairy tale” was set, the role of the unconscious was actualized, the meaning of time was revealed, language received an ontological status, and the concept of “game” post-modern reflection. The article attempts to update Russian constructivism and formalism to demonstrate foundations of post-modernism.

Keywords: modernism, post-modernism, suprematism, acmeism, formalism, constructivism, futurism, sound/phoneme, game, freedom.
