Modern Architecture in Czechoslovakia and Other Writings
The writings of graphic designer, prolific critic, and avant-garde partisan Karel Teige (1900-1951) represent one of the great forgotten legacies of modern artistic theory. Appearing now for the first time in English as Modern Architecture in Czechoslovakia, Teige's original work is supplemented here by a selection of his other writings on art and architecture. An introduction by Jean-Louis Cohen vividly traces the diverse pursuits of this multifaceted figure.
