In 1919-1920, together with his brother George Avgustovich Stenberg was to unite Young Artists [IBMOHU], in 1921-1924 was the Institute of Artistic Culture [INKHUK]. In November 1920, in the framework of the Moscow Inhuka born the First working group of constructivists (A. Gan, K. Joganson, K. Medunetsky, Rodchenko, V. Stepanova, V. and G. Stenberg), the theorist of which was Alexei Gan to set down his views in his book "Constructivism" (1922). In this working group held discussions and put experiments in composition and design, with the goal of achieving a transition "from image to design". This period (late 1920 – 1921) the Brothers Stenberg, and Konstantin Medunetsky laboratory searches begin with the creation of tsvetokorrektsii coming from "counter-reliefs" Tatlin:

Works from this series were exhibited at landmark for only the Second Russian avant-garde exhibition of ibmohu may 22, 1921, In particular, on one of the two surviving photographs of the exhibition visible "Tsvetokorrektsiya No. 7" Medunica.
The main feature of the experimental "tsvetokorrektsii" brothers Stenberg, and Konstantin Meunargia is a dynamic combination of lines with flat geometric fields. Two paintings by Vladimir Stenberg particularly interesting in view of the fact that are a single story with a different degree of abstraction. If the first work depicts figures of workers, gives the composition depth and the story some context, the second is a perfect abstraction, devoid of any volume. The combination of the two pictures illustrates the transition "from image to design".
