Margo Hammond: Surrealism & Crime
The history of Surrealism is littered with corpses. Painting dismembered bodies, posing mannequins to look like dead bodies and writing about assassinations as acts of transgressive valor, the surrealists often focused on criminality and violence. The surrealists called their favorite parlor game “The Exquisite Corpse.” In this coffee talk, author and editor Margo Hammond examines the surrealists’ connection with crime, including the possibility that their aesthetic theories inspired a real life crime: the unsolved Black Dahlia murder.
