1-54 Forum Marrakech

22 - 24 February 2019

Introductory Remarks by Karima Boudou [FR]

Karima Boudou (1-54 Forum Programme Curator) gives insights into this year’s 1-54 Forum programme.

Ted Joans, Surrealist Traveller [EN]

Starts at 10:00 in the recording.

Ted Joans’ engagement with surrealism was often removed from the movement’s supposed bedrock of Paris, and closely involved with broader transatlantic dialogues of anti-colonialism and anti-racism. Grounding the forthcoming programme and drawing on current research, Joanna Pawlik (Lecturer at the University of Sussex) discusses Ted Joans’ relationship with surrealism, what it offered him as an artist and poet and how these could be used as a lens through which to place surrealism in contemporary discourse.
