Collective Inventions constitutes the first collection and book-length publication on Surrealism in Belgium on which Belgian and Anglo-American scholars have collaborated. Collective Inventions offers new writings by leading international scholars and experts on the movement's diverse manifestations in Belgium. The essays range from comparative analyses of Surrealism in Belgium with other versions of Surrealism, particularly French, to detailed critical engagements with individual oeuvres. The authors use contemporary theoretical and critical models to explore artistic production in a variety of media, including painting and photography, film and fashion, postcards and Perspex. Collective Inventions significantly widens current understandings of Surrealism.
