Breaking the Rules: The Printed Face of the European Avant-Garde, 1900-1937

An unequalled opportunity to see works from the great age of innovation in typography and book design throughout Europe, and much more, featuring unique examples of Suprematism, Constructivism, Dada, Futurism and Surrealism with gallery talks, original sound and film material, music and performances.


The exhibition includes a section on Prague, featuring architectural designs by Jaromir Krejcar, Karel Teige's pictorial poems and typographic compositions, and rare first editions of works by Konstantin Biebl, Vitezslav Nezval, Jaroslav Seifert and other members of the Devetsil group, presented in the historical and cultural context of the newly independent state of Czechoslovakia in the 1920s.
