This exhibition was organised in November 1970 by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, whose director was Liebeth Crommelin, and was curated by Hansjörg Mayer (DE), Reinhard Döhl (DE), Bob Cobbing (UK) and Paul De Vree (BE). The following year the show travelled to the International Cultural Centre (ICC) in Antwerp and subsequently to Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Liverpool and Oxford.

The exhibition was subdivided into various sections: a didactic section in which several forms and work methods in visual poetry were displayed; and the presentation of the diversity of constellations and adaptations (primarily typographic) subdivided into various groupings or geographic regions. The exhibition thus ran the risk of taking a historicizing approach. De Vree was the great advocate for turning things around by the creation of a third section entitled Open End. This more future-oriented section included poetic work by artists who also used other visual means besides the merely typographic, and thereby often incorporated clear expressions of socio-political or conceptual ideas. Most of these poets would later come together in Lotta poetica, the international journal for artists founded by Sarenco and Paul De Vree in 1971.
