Beyond Word

The typeface used as a visual symbol. The art project “Beyond Word“, is dedicated to the doyen of  Czech visual poetry Bohumila Grögerová (1921—2014), and researches whether, and how, the visual poetry of the 1960s can be an  inspiration for the contemporary graphic designer.

Seventy text photograms show the artistic reflection of selected passages from the late poetry collection of B. Grögerová’s  Manuscript (2009). The book is a contrast between a vivid and fascinating mind, with the deteriorating visual handicap of the poet, who wrote this poetry while almost blind. This inspiration for the visual reinterpretation of the work thus became the relationship of light to the material of the word.

During more than two years of visits to Bohumila Grögerová´s home, there arose also a series of documentary photos, and a lengthy interview with Bohumila Grögerová (which will be published by Akropolis publishing house in 2015).
