Agulha Revista de Cultura # 149 | Janeiro de 2020


For Brazilian readers, this issue of Agulha Revista de Cultura must feel strange at first sight. Not just because it is entirely in English, but also because it is fully devoted to a single country and was organized not by the publishers, but by a guest Editor, Czech artist and critic Jan Dočekal, who promptly answered the call. This project is something we
intend to repeat over the course of this year, including editions devoted to several other countries. This will afford a better understanding of these countries’ cultural and artistic views as seen from within. The guest editors are familiar contributors to Agulha Revista de Cultura, each one offering, according to their own worldview, a valuable and unique agenda. Jan Dočekal, for example, chose to write every text himself. Therefore, the words ahead are his, as we understand that, after all, this issue’s editorial could only be his:


The current edition of Agulha Revista de Cultura is dedicated to Surrealism in Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic. My current cooperation is in friendship with Floriano Martins. I admire his insight and enthusiasm, his humanism, the fruit of spiritual spice in poetry. Floriano Martins is an important figure strengthening contemporary Surrealism.
I cannot provide credible information about contemporary Surrealism in the Czech Republic. There is no basis for mapping. Surrealism in the Czech Republic is not uniform. Unity is not looking for. It exists freely in many forms. It has a size that is not visible in exhibitions. But I say that much happens outside the visible world. No support and no publicity. I stand very close to the Czech surrealistic group Stir up. I can write about that. In the beginning there is an interview with a member of Stir up Arnošt Budík. He is a Czech living half a century in Belgium. Surrealist par excellence. Theoretician and creator. Arnošt Budík is an active, indispensable personality for Surrealism.

Lubomír Kerndl
