Surrealism: Sex, Dreams, and RevolutionCourse Cancelled

Efthymia Rentzou

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

This course sets out to explore the basic ideas, works, and principles of Surrealism as it was developed in France from its inception in the early 1920s into the late 1950s. A very wide array of material will cover diverse literary genres (manifestoes, novels, poems, essays) and media (film, photography, visual art, art exhibition, magazines) to show how the Surrealists wanted to revolutionize both art and life in its political and ethical dimensions. The course is highly interactive, built on a series of students’ group activities and projects, both creative and critical, with the use of various media.
