Against SurrealismWhile Surrealism exerted a major influence on twentieth-century literature, visual art, and philosophy, it might be fair to say that much of that influence was closer to an opposition. For instance, Georges Bastille, Raymond Queneau and Oulipo, Walter Benjamin, and the dozens of writers and artists that Breton excommunicated, all broke, in various ways, with Surrealism.
This panel is looking for papers on writers, visual artists, and/or theorists who critiqued, rejected or substantially redirected the various Surrealist impulses. Please send completed papers or abstracts to Bill Freind (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 30.
