Queer Surrealists: Claude Cahun, Marcel Moore and their contemporaries – GI 23 002 (Face to Face)
7 September 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST
Tutor: Chelsea Eves BA MAGo to all Courses
Born as Lucy Renee Mathilde Schwob, this fascinating artist tried a few different names before settling on Claude Cahun. Her stepsister, partner and collaborator Suzanne Malherbe chose a similarly asexual name, Marcel Moore. Together and individually, the pair created a subversive body of work that has often been associated with Surrealism. Their art opened up new possibilities for gender, sexuality and personal identity. This lecture will explore their lives and work, as well as that of their contemporaries.
