DAV was a Slovak leftist magazine edited by journalist and lawyer Vladimír Clementis and published from 1924-1937. The magazine was dedicated to art, philosophy, literature and politics. It introduced Surrealism, modernist architecture and avant-garde poetry into Slovakia. During its early ears, until 1929, the magazine was focusing on socialist art and cultural politics, later to expand its attention to broader political, social, economic and ideological issues.

From its beginning, the collaborators included literary critic and journalist Daniel Okáli, poet, writer, translator and playwright Ján Rob Poničan, Peter Jilemnický, Ladislav Novomeský, Ladislav Szántó, poet and literary critic Eduard Urx, Jozef Tomášik-Dumín, Jarko Elen, Jozef Zindra, and others. During its final years, a younger generation of contributors included Gustáv Husák, Alexander Matuška, Michal Chorváth, Jozef Rybák and Andrej Bagar.
