Avant-garde study group

The Avant-Garde Study Group is a forum for discussing the (historical) avant-garde (eg Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Vorticism, Constructivism, Dada, Surrealism, etc.). This list is not intended to be restrictive, and there are many other -isms which could be included, as well as less programmatic manifestations.

We generally do close readings of primary texts in a range of media, against the backdrop of different theoretical formulations of the avant-garde, but other approaches are also welcome. The sessions are open to all, run collectively and shaped by the interests of the participants.

We meet during term time on alternate Tuesdays from 7-9pm. For more information please .
