Back to School

Also, me on the City Academies in BD. A minor edit had the consequence that this column now lacks one of my favourite words, unctuous. Isn't it absolutely perfect for what it describes? An image is instantly brought up in the mind of the round of applause at the end of a New Labour conference speech.

Just discovered your link to my humble effort. I'll have to come back (maybe after turning in the latest draft of dissertation?) and explore all those excellent architectural and poster and film and whatnot items I see further down the page. Perhaps it will reinvigorate my posting of Czech modernist excitements, which has slacked off a bit lately.

Please do. A smallish part of my thesis is on Karel Teige and Devetsil, which is tricky and all not knowing any Czech - found your blog when searching on the subject, which is very unjustly neglected...

Ah, well then we will definitely have to get to know each other better. I'm guessing you're mostly dealing with the architectural side there? And that you've seen the Getty's translation of Teige's Minimum Dwelling? Of course, Teige wrote endlessly and changed his mind frequently, but...

Some of the actual architects from Devětsil also wrote, though not as copiously.

Sort of on architecture, sort of on film, design and all manner of other business. I've read that translation, and Modern architecture in Czechoslovakia and the Enfant Terrible anthology; but I'm very keen to get a translation of his two books on comedy - I just wrote a chapter on the subject while having to rely on the typography and the pictures...

I don't think anyone has translated the books on comedy. Maybe into German, that could be...

Do you know Donna Roberts at University of Essex? She was mentioning some sort of translation project awhile back but we went out for drinks instead of discussing what it was all about.
