Exhibition "The book as image" at the MADD of Bordeaux

  • From 25/01/2018 until 06/05/2018


Theme : Creative arts/plastic arts


Publishers and artists of the Czech avant-garde (1920-1930)
An invitation to a collector
January 25 through May 6, 2018

The madd spotlights the Czech artistic avant-garde in this presentation of an exceptional collection of books from the period between the two world wars.

From Rondocubism to Dadaist collage and photomontage, the covers of novels published in Prague in those years reflect the major currents that shaped the history of 20th century art.

In addition to the work of painters, illustrators and graphic artists like Josef Capek, Karel Teige and Adolf Hoffmeister, the exhibition highlights the key role of publishers in the quest for new typographical conceptions and compositions. A professor at EBABX (Ecole d’Enseignement Supérieur d’Art de Bordeaux) and a historian specializing in graphics, Pierre Ponant has compiled a collection of more than 100 of these books.
