Karel Teige/1900-1951: L'enfant Terrible of the Czech Modernist Avant-Garde is a comprehensive volume that examines the life and work of Karel Teige, one of the leading figures of the European avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s. Teige participated in every important artistic argument and controversy of those turbulent years. He edited the most influential avant-garde journals on Czech and international cultural developments and wrote profoundly original essays and books on the theory and criticism of art and architecture. He also produced paintings, collages, photomontages, film scripts, book covers, and typefaces and participated in theatrical performances.
 
The volume includes ten essays by eminent scholars and four annotated and translated theoretical tracts by Teige, previously unavailable in English.
