Description: In the Paris art world of the 1920s, Georges Bataille and his journal DOCUMENTSrepresented a dissident branch of surrealism. Bataille--poet, philosopher, writer, and self-styled "enemy within" surrealism--used DOCUMENTSto put art into violent confrontation with popular culture, ethnography, film, and archaeology. Undercover Surrealism, taking the visual richness of DOCUMENTSas its starting point, recovers the explosive and vital intellectual context of works by Picasso, Daliacute;, Miroacute;, Giacometti, and others in 1920s Paris. Featuring 180 color images and translations of original texts from DOCUMENTSaccompanied by essays and shorter descriptive texts, Undercover Surrealismrecreates and recontextualizes Bataille's still unsettling approach to culture. Putting Picasso's Three Dancersback into its original context of sex, sacrifice, and violence, for example, then juxtaposing it with images of gang wars, tribal masks, voodoo ritual, Hollywood musicals, and jazz, makes the urgency and excitement of Bataille's radical ideas startlingly vivid to a twenty-first-century reader.
