"Poetism is the crown of life; Constructivism is its basis" // Karel Teige
“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us.
If the book we are reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head,
what are we reading it for?…we need the books that affect us like a
disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more
than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a
suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us” // Franz
Kafka, letter to Oskar Pollack, 27 January 1904
