Anti-Wall - A contribution to a more or less caput comprehension of surrealism
Mystić Constructions & The Boring One, Surrealist Editions, Belgrade, 1932.
Poetic translation and transduction Howard Slater, London / Novi Sad 2017
The Anti-Wall came from one of many steps in the collaboration of kuda.org and GCP with Howard Slater over the past few years. This latest collaboration has brought us together around a common interest in lesser-known manifestations of the Surrealist movement, both locally and globally. Thus, the Anti-Wall represents the point of connection (the "ship of communication") of the Belgrade Surrealist group and those from the Antilles who gathered around the magazines Légitime Défence and Tropiques.
Also, this process has become a means of the political and affective substance of artistic organization now and here, as in the past: Infra- and ourOrganization, politics as opinion, at a distance from the state and political parties are just some of the common themes embedded in poetic and experimental transduction Anti -walls, originally written by Marko Ristic & Vane Bor and published Surrealist editions in Belgrade in 1932. This transduced book, we hope, will help us to overcome our own walls.
