In the early seventies Pieter Laurens Mol was an outspoken protagonist of Concrete Poetry. Twisted Dutch sayings like ‘De vloer met jezelf aanvegen’ [meaning: instead of walk over someone… walking over oneself] were visualized into a print or photo. Or the six letters of the word POETRY were cast in concrete and hold together by a rope.
