Log-in for full text

The Introduction frames the book’s argument in relation to the development of Surrealism as a response to historical trauma, and identifies and locates the tradition of Germanophone women artists to be addressed in subsequent chapters. It establishes the significance of the moment of Erschütterung or ‘traumatic shattering’ that will recur as a motif in subsequent chapters.
