‘The work presented in this exhibition crosses the frontier between two quite clearly defined fields of creative activity — poetry and painting. There may be no single accurate definition of this hybrid form of expression — one thing is quite clear, nevertheless — visual poetry in its various forms constitutes the first international poetry movement.’ — From the first introduction’s paragraph, written by Jasia Reichardt.
