Dreams and Disillusion: Karel Teige and the Czech Avant-Garde

Karel Teige (pronounced TY-ghe) was the most important Czech proponent of modernism during the 1920s and 30s. Previously overlooked in Western accounts of the European avant-garde, Teige (1900–1951) was a graphic designer and architectural theorist whose innovations in book design and poetry revolutionized artistic production in Czechoslovakia in the two decades leading up to the Second World War.
