Undercover Surrealism is the first major survey of DOCUMENTS, the radical surrealist magazine published in France in 1929 and 1930, and edited by the avant-garde philosopher and novelist Georges Bataille. DOCUMENTS combined an eclectic mixture of art, archaeology, ethnography and popular culture, drawing in many of the greatest writers, poets and artists of the time, including Carl Einstein, Robert Desnos, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and Andre Masson. With essays by leading authorities on Bataille and Surrealism, and new translations of original articles, Undercover Surrealism reflects both the subversive energy and the violent confrontations of imagery and ideas found in DOCUMENTS. It offers fresh insight into the cultural and intellectual climate of Paris in the late 1920s. Condition: Previous owner’s signature and inscription to half-title page, otherwise very good.
