Wild Surrealism: Lorca, Dalí, Buñuel

Spanish surrealism emerged unevenly. Some writers and artists sought out the surrealist label while others rejected or ignored it altogether. Some attempted to adhere to André Breton’s “Surrealist Manifesto” while others went decidedly against its principles. Yet surrealism, in one way or another, took over the Spanish artistic scene during the 1920s and ’30s. Today, it is associated with Federico García Lorca, Salvador Dalí, and Luis Buñuel. Friends, roommates, and even lovers, Lorca, Dalí, and Buñuel came to define surrealism’s acceptance, rejection, and indifference in Spain. This seminar will examine the moment of Spanish surrealism through these three figures. The course will include the study of film, art, drama, poetry, and nonfiction. Taught in Spanish.
