Abstract (in English): 

This paper is a theoretical approach to videopoetry. The concept of videopoetry as distinct from videoart came as the result of experimenting with video for creative and poetic production using verbal and nonverbal signs in 1968. It was not until 1985 that I had the opportunity to develop a new body of video work. Videopoetry soon became a new kind of poetry in its own right, with its own grammar and semantics. Thus videopoetry is a challenge for poets and readers as we are drifting away from Mallarmé’s galaxy and cannot escape the worldwide information sphere.
