Caesura is pleased to announce the launch of our inaugural print issue: ART & FREEDOM. Please join us to celebrate at Prairie in Pilsen on November 20th, 2021 from 6-9pm.
This issue of Caesura looks back on Surrealism not as an answer to the current crisis of art, but as one of the last movements to raise it as a question for life. The legacy of Surrealism is undoubtedly problematic: its novel techniques and strange effects have been repeatedly hypostatized and deployed in the production, both high and low, of culture industry kitsch. Still something remains of its original drive: to pierce the veil of appearance for a glimpse at the underlying forms that constitute subjective experience. For the concrete, as Marx says, “is concrete by virtue of being the concentration of many determinations.” Surrealism — more real than reality itself.
The issue will be available to purchase at the launch event for $20 (PayPal, Venmo, and cash accepted).
