Additional Information

Item details
It is widely recognised that Surrealism has been fundamental to the development of Modern art and literature. What is often underappreciated, however, is its international perspective. This thought provoking and comprehensive survey reveals what happened to surrealism as it travelled to and fro between Europe and Latin America. For almost three decades, journeys, encounters, exchanges, collaborations and exhibitions forged multiple links. Surrealism flourished and transformed itself aided by poets and artists including Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Frida Kahlo, Wifredo Lam, Roberto Matta, César Moro and Octavio Paz.

Almost a century after the first manifestos appeared, this timely volume considers the lasting legacy the movement left. This book is the first to cover both literary and visual surrealism, and explores in fascinating detail how artists and writers contested, embraced and adapted a host of avant-garde ideas and practices.

Dawn Ades is semi-retired Professor of Art History and Theory at the University of Essex, and has written extensively on Dada and Surrealism. Rita Eder is a researcher and former Director of the Instituto de Investigaciones Estéticas (UNAM). Graciela Speranza is a Professor at the Universidad de Buenos Aires and the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires.

Contributors include Gavin Parkinson, Maria Clara Bernal, Andreas Neufert and Yolanda Westphalen.
