514HKXmCJSLLinda Steer (PhD 2006), Associate Professor of Visual Arts at Brock University, has just published her innovative study, Appropriated Photographs in French Surrealist Periodicals, 1924–1939. The book, based on her Binghamton dissertation, is published by Routledge and is the first monograph to analyze the Surrealist gesture of photographic appropriation, examining “found” photographs in three French Surrealist reviews from the 1920s and 1930s: La Révolution surréaliste, edited by André Breton; Documents, edited by Georges Bataille; and Minotaure, edited by Breton and others.
