A monograph on the Czech architect Karel Teige (1900-1951), one of the noblest figures among those who generously shared the dreams of the 20th-century avantgarde.
[Karel Teige. Places and thoughts of the modern, 1900-1951] A monograph on Karel Teige for the exhibition “Karel Teige. Architettura, Poesia. Praga 1900-1951” held in 1996 in Trieste. Teige is one of the noblest figures among those who generously shared the dreams of the 20th-century avantgarde. Manuela Castagnara Codeluppi, editor of the volume, analyzes many aspects of the complex personality of the artist, approaching his work in an orderly manner and revealing unknown aspects, such as the original architecture of the erotic fragment . Teige’s name appears in nearly all the avantgarde organs from the 1920s onward; he was a very prolific writer, organizer of exhibitions and editor of magazines on the leading expressions of 20th-century culture. A revolutionary artist who made a decisive contribution to the original, radical developments in Czech architecture.
