Women in the Surrealist Movement

This class is designed to give students a basic introduction to the female Surrealists, works, movements, and aesthetic theories the Surrealist Movement.

Some of the most mind-bending art ever developed during the Surrealist movement. However, the movement itself was largely made up of men. Despite this, there were women who quietly and not so quietly changed the movement forever. These women went beyond the femme fatale and femme enfant imagery encouraged by Andre Breton and fought for their place in the narrative. We will examine how their work illustrates the dynamic emotional landscapes within their subconscious and the surrounding chaos the impending World War.
