9782370740311: Art et Liberte: Rupture, War and Surrealism in Egypt (1938 - 1948)

The Art and Liberty Group (Art et Liberté―jama'at al-fann wa al-hurriyyah) was a predominantly Surrealist collective comprising, at its core, a number of artists and writers living and working in Cairo mostly from the late 1930s until the late 1940s. Shedding new light on this fascinating manifestation of Surrealism in Egypt, this book includes a select anthology of literary works by various Art et Liberté members, transcriptions of rare primary documents, and a comprehensive visual inventory of artworks most of which have never been published before. Given its breadth of scope, this monograph will be the first exhaustive academic work of its kind on the art, as well as the literature, of Art et Liberté.
