Invitation a la Premiere Conference Internationale du Surréalisme Révolutionnaire

Bruxelles: Le Groupe Surréaliste-revolutionnaire en Belgique, 1947. 8 1/2 x 10 1/2", printed in red on beige paper.

Important manifesto by the group announcing the landmark conference, and distancing themselves from Breton, which was probably penned by Dotremont. As well as marking the split from the Breton Surrealists, this document also lays the groundwork for the formation of COBRA in 1950, and it was at the conference that Dotremont made use of Henri Lefebvre's work to justify the demand that the Surrealist experiment must take place in the context of everyday life. Individual members of the group are not named on the flyer, but at this time included Marcel Broodthaers, Magritte, Marien Marcel, Louis Scutenaire et al.

Designed to be folded into a four pp. booklet, this example has never been folded, but is toned and brittle and chipped at all margins, with a small internal hole not affecting text. Fair only. Item #26325

Price: $150.00
