Around Jewish Art
The seemingly effortless process by which a suitable title is selected for an encyclopedia such as this became exponentially more complex and difficult as I explored the available options and heard the mounting arguments from all sides. Finding the right mix of words was crucial. After pondering the subject for several months in an effort to arrive at the best possible title, I finally opted for "Around Jewish Art."

Labas then taught painting at Vkhutemas and moved away from abstraction, becoming a founding member of OST in 1925. Three years later he created stage designs for BelGoset. His paintings of the late 1920s tended to stress the power of engines and aircraft. He then extolled the urban technology of modern life with human figures becoming mere notations. In 1931, Labas took part in the anti-Imperialist Exhibition in Moscow and became a member of MOSSKh the following year. He had a brief career as a stage designer for the Yiddish Theatre in 1934-35 and in 1937 designed the decorative panel for the Soviet Pavilion at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. Labas had a solo exhibition in 1976 at the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and produced paintings depicting cityscapes and landscapes until the year of his death.
