Želimir Koščević | i |
last name: Koščević
first name: Želimir

As part of the tendencije 4 (tendencies 4) exhibitions, Koščević organized the exhibition “Typoetry” (with Željka Čorak and Biljana Tomić). It took place at the Students Center Gallery in Zagreb, from May 6 to 24, 1969.

The term typoetry was meant to identify “visual research based on the primary elements of visual (concrete) poetry”. And the “primary elements” were the letters of the (Latin) alphabet. Whereas concrete poetry is often based on words of the language that, necessarily, carry meaning, typoetry reduces further to the characters of writing in their purely visual appearance, without any meaning.
