The Pope of the Avant-garde. Tadeusz Peiper in Spain, Poland, Europe

The Pope of the Avant-garde. Tadeusz Peiper in Spain, Poland, Europe

The exhibition organized by the National Museum in Warsaw and the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid is dedicated to a central figure in the Polish avant-garde and modern movement, Tadeusz Peiper, poet, theatre writer, theoretician – and to the artistic and literary relations between avant-garde movements in Poland and Spain during the first decades of the 20th century. Tadeusz Peiper has been one of the central figures of the Avant-garde in Central Europe. What is little known, however, is that he had been formed as a thinker and writer in Madrid in the years 1915-1920, where he had been part of the Polish circle of artists active within the Ultraist movement. After his return to Poland in 1920-21 his esthetic ideas have influenced poetry, painting, photomontage, film and theater in his homeland. Peiper was instrumental in bringing about the influential magazine Zwrotnica, produced in collaboration with constructivist painter Wladyslaw Strzeminski and others , had been close with leading figures of the avant-garde, including Vincente Huidobro, Kazimir Malevich, Juan Gris, Fernand Leger, and others.
