Devětsil (Czech avant-garde group, active 1920-1931)

Note: Group of architects, photographers, painters, filmmakers, poets, critics, and designers founded 5 November 1920 in the Cafe Union in Prague by Karel Teige and several others. The group functioned as the critical center of the Czech avant-garde in the 1920s. They hoped to unite lyricism with utilitarianism, and especially functionalism in the realm of architecture, under the banner of 'Poetism.' Works by members of the group show the influence of other avant-garde movements of the early 20th century including Cubism, Constructivism, and Surrealism. When Devětsil formally dissolved, many members tranferred their affiliation to a Czech Surrealist group.
