Max Ernst at the Valentine Gallery, Spring 1942

Dr. Julia Drost talks at the Princeton University (Departement of French and Italian) at the international conference:

„Surrealism: From France to the World“

Surrealism, a major movement in modern poetry, art, and intellectual history, began in Paris after the First World War, generating major new artists and artworks for over fifty years. Though it originated in Paris, the Surrealist movement fostered strong international membership; as European politics became increasingly unstable during the 1930s and into the Second World War, Surrealist groups began appearing in Europe as well as in Japan, Morocco, Egypt, Mexico, Chile, Haiti, Cuba, and the United States. Today the movement’s influence permeates contemporary poetry, art, and philosophy, as well as the history of leftist and anti-colonial politics. Although the scholarly field of Surrealism studies is vibrant, it is fragmented both disciplinarily and geographically. North American and French academia are the main centers of research on Surrealism and there is a major need and opportunity to make it possible for scholars there —as well as scholars and curators worldwide— to convene for sustained interdisciplinary exchange that will redefine the field and streamline discussions on the continued relevance of Surrealism as an avant-garde experimental movement in literature, art, and thought. The proposed International Conference, “Surrealism: From France to the World” that will be held at Princeton University in April 2018 aims precisely at unifying the scholarly field of Surrealism studies in the arts and humanities, beginning with Anglo-American and French academia.
