ReD (měsíčník pro moderní kulturu / Revue internationale illustrée de l’activité contemporaine / Internationale Monatsschrift für moderne Gestaltung) was an art magazine published by members of the Czech avant-garde art collective Devětsil, edited and designed by Karel Teige.

Thirty numbers were published, with the special issues on the Russian avant-garde, Bauhaus, and photography/film/typography.

Several manifestos appeared in the journal: Toyen and Jindřich Štyrský’s "Artificielisme" (1:1, 1927), Karel Teige’s second Poetism manifesto [Manifest Poetismu] (1:9, 1928), and Levá fronta [Left Front]‘s founding manifesto (3:2, 1929).
