 - (In)actualité du surréalisme (1940-2020)
A reevaluation of Surrealism since 1940: a large-scale, groundbreaking work covering seven decades—a vast and little-studied period during which the movement was often disregarded, sometimes denied—, questioning the discourses, narratives, and debates on the poetic, political, and artistic commitments of the movement, beyond the glorious interwar period of so-called "historical" Surrealism, in the context of the deep social and cultural mutations of the world of the second half of the 20th century.
