Joan Brossa was a Catalan poet, playwright, graphic designer, and visual artist who pioneered the concept of “visual poetry,” becoming widely known for his sculptural “object poems” and graphic “visual poems.” Brossa defined this work as “the expression of a poetic world by means of a visual code,” also characterizing his often witty recontextualizations of everyday objects, text, and images as the creation of visual metaphors via “the language of things.” In 1948, Brossa spearheaded the important Catalan avant-garde group and artistic movement, Dau al Set. Heavily influenced by the Surrealist and Dadaist movements, Dau al Set is best known for its underlying mission to translate the conscious and unconscious mind into art.
