A Glossary of Catchwords of the Czech Avant-Garde

A Glossary of Catchwords of the Czech Avant-garde is a collective enterprise aimed at reconstructing some of the landmark concepts and ideas that the Czech avant-garde brought primarily into literature and the visual arts.

Vyzliekanie z kroja - Ľubomír Longauer

Druhý diel cyklu Úžitková grafika na Slovensku po roku 1918 Vyzliekanie z kroja sa zaoberá prienikom modernej typografie a úžitkovej grafiky na Slovensko. Modernú, tzv. novú typografiu začali na Slovensku šíriť intelektuáli z okruhu kultúrno-politického mesačníka DAV.
