9780061315992: Surrealism: Theater, Arts, Ideas (Harper Torchbooks, TB 1599)

The lively young artists of the Surrealist Movement shocked Paris in the 1920's with the first strong statement of many tendencies which still drive the avant-garde today. They centered art in the artist's identity while including spectators in the act of creation; denied distinctions between life and art, sense and nonsense; and conceived not only drama and film, but also painting, poetry, and music as theatrical performance. CHAPTERS: Historical Background; Dada and Surrealism; The Artist; The Art; The Audience. ILLUSTRATIONS: paintings and sculpture, performance photos, film stills. Bibliography, appendices. Original translation of Surrealist play.
