The subject of the conference is the ‘Central European avant-garde magazine’, arguably the most important medium of communication for progressive literature and visual arts in the region during and after WWI. Given the multifaceted nature of the phenomenon, the analysis will take an interdisciplinary perspective and employ several different approaches. The avant-garde magazine will be examined as a discursive space of avant-garde communication, as a Gesamtkunstwerk, and as a historical document. As the recent conjuncture in scholarship positions the art of the region in the international context, our aim is to draw more attention to the interrelationships between the local contexts and international networks of Central European avant-gardes. How did the different cultural and historical characteristics affect the ‘local’ avant-gardes of Central Europe? How are the avant-garde magazines of Central Europe related to each other? Accordingly, how could ‘Central European avant-gardes’ be described from the perspectives of Kraków, Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava or Budapest? Through detailed case studies, the conference will emphasize the complex and problematic nature of Central European avant-garde magazines regarding the questions of national/local and international/cosmopolitan. The conference includes monographic, thematic and problem-oriented lectures on current research on local avant-garde magazines published during WWI and in the interwar period.

Lajos Kassák’s first journal A Tett (The Action), launched in 1915, was primarily an artistic and political attack on the culture of war. With a left-wing, socially-committed outlook, it employed social criticism and the novel principles of journal publishing to stand up to prevailing wartime discourse of stigmatizing the enemy. The radical artistic and political standpoint represented by A Tett may not be immediately apparent to the modern reader. In the hundred years that have passed, the points of reference against which the journal appeared seditious, violating norms and even “threatening the interests of warfare” have faded away. The exhibition outlines the Hungarian and international contexts in which A Tett operated, showing how the journal did indeed constitute a “signal to the world”, the Kassák slogan chosen as the exhibition title. The purpose is not, however, to put on a reverential centenary celebration of Kassák’s journal. To present A Tett merely as a bold stand against the war or, concentrating on the aesthetics of the art it published, as a museum of attempts by the early avant-garde to seek a way forward, would be too narrow an aim. Drawing on primary sources, the exhibition reconstructs the context against which A Tett was making a politically motivated and artistically valid response. This context comprised above all the popular press, the culture of war, and artistic and political hinterland of the journal and the anti-war international art that was the conceptual basis for Kassák’s response.

Modernist Network Cymru (MONC) is a new national modernist studies network. Inspired by its sister organisation the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the network aims to bring together scholars and professionals working on modernism in Wales to encourage better collaboration and communication. The group includes, but is not limited to, the study of Welsh modernism. In order to be as inclusive as possible, we define modernism broadly as literary, artistic, musical and cultural responses to modernity, predominately (but not exclusively) in the first half of the twentieth century. We are an interdisciplinary network and welcome both members who work on ‘High Modernism’ as it is traditionally defined and those who work on modern popular culture, the middlebrow, or conceptions of modernity more generally.

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.
