Dada, Surrealism, and Romania

In the past decade, scholars have increasingly recognized the seminal contributions of Romanian writers and artists to the development of Dada and Surrealism in Western Europe. At the same time, the impact of those movements on the Romanian avant-garde following the First World War has been receiving renewed attention. This special issue will seek to encompass the breadth of Dada and Surrealist activity within Romania as well as the contributions of Romanians working outside their native country.

Contributors include Cosana Eram, Krzysztof Fijalkowski, Michael Finkenthal, Michel Gourdet, Catherine Hansen, Marius Hentea, Monique Jutrin, Giovanni Magliocco, Camille Morando, Ovidiu Morar, Ion Pop, Francoise Nicol, Petre Raileanu, Iulian Toma, Monique Yaari and others.
