ReD, signal rouge de l’avant-garde tchèque

par Aurèle Letricot
1995, in La Revue des revues n° 19

The ReD journal (1927-1931) was the means of expression of Devétsil, the Czechoslovakian avant-garde group founded in 1920 by Karel Teige. The journal was a militant advocate for both constructivism and poetism – despite the fact that they are two opposing concepts, which the journal transposed within its very structure. A reflection of Karel Teige’s cosmopolitan culture, ReD was above all an anthology of artistic goings-on worldwilde, strengthened by the eclecticism of its contents, the pluralism of languages used for publication and the strong presence of foreign contributors.
