Karel Teige / 1900–1951 L’Enfant Terrible of the Czech Modernist Avant-Garde

This book provides a long-overdue exploration of the career of the most important Czech proponent of modernism, Karel Teige, a leading figure of the European avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s. He edited the most influential avant-garde journals on Czech and international cultural developments and wrote profoundly original essays and books on the theory and criticism of art and architecture.  He also produced paintings, collages, photo-montages, film scripts, book covers, and typefaces, and participated in theatrical performances. Since the recovery of his work after the “velvet revolution” of 1989, his legacy has been revived not only in Prague but also in Western Europe and the United States.
