The International Encyclopedia of Surrealism

All our teachers are experts in their respective fields, who are able to instil a thirst for knowledge in our students.

What’s more, they are involved in current research, pursuing their academic careers, and publishing their papers.

Dr Karolina Watras, Deputy Head at Akademeia High School, had the pleasure to write an entry included in the very first edition of The International Encyclopedia of Surrealism (published in Feb 2019): link

Surrealism is one of the most influential and popular art forms of the last century. It has shaped painting, literature, film, photography, music, theatre, architecture, fashion and design, as well as thinking about politics and culture. The Encyclopedia presents the first comprehensive and systematic overview of surrealism internationally, from its beginnings to the present day.

Volume 1 includes overviews of national surrealist movements, surrealism’s influence across the visual, applied and performing arts, and analyses of the concepts which underpin surrealism. Volumes 2 and 3 present an A-Z of both the significant and the lesser-known individuals – theorists, critics, novelists, poets, playwrights, screenwriters, designers, painters, collagists, object makers, sculptors, film makers, and photographers – who have made and continue to make surrealism. The volume concludes with a detailed overview of contemporary surrealist practice.
