The written word has always inspired great fascination for artists, who experimented with its creative possibilities as far back as the historical avant-gardes.

Written, drawn, repeated, erased, as casual exercise or foundational element, thesis or method, the word has been used incessantly up until the present day to provoke emotions or manifest experiences, and to spread messages of social and political activism.
