Karel Teige (1900-51) was a graphic designer, critic, and Czech partisan who in 1920 founded a group to promote modernism in the international sphere through polemics and manifestos. This is a translation of Karel Teige's 1930 publication that brought attention to the modernist movement of his native Czechoslovakia and aligned it with the avant-garde efforts of the East and West. Three essays by Teige on art and architecture supplement the volume: "Toward a New Architecture"; "Ten Years of the Bauhaus"; and "Constructivism and the Liquidation of Art".
