Dom Sylvester Houédard

Broumov Monastery

The second round of the Ora et lege (Pray and Read) project at the Educational and Cultural Centre, Broumov Monastery will present the work of the Benedictine monk and prominent British neo-avant-garde artist, Dom Sylvester Houédard (1924–1992).


Also known under the pseudonyms “dsh” or “dom”, he was widely recognized during his lifetime as one of the leading theorists and important representatives of concrete poetry. His solo exhibition entitled endlessly inside is his first in the Czech Republic and one of the projects bringing his unjustly forgotten work back into cultural awareness. The exhibition will include a series of performances by other leading artists associated with concrete poetry as it is reflected today.


The exhibition will be open 25 June - 24 September.
