CLAUDE CAHUN’S SURREALISM

November 29, 2011

Lucy Schwob used the pseudonym Claude Cahun during her multidisciplinary artistic career. She was a writer, a woman of theatre and a photographer, and for years unjustly forgotten about until the 1980s when two exhibitions on her were held inFrance.

Now La Virreina Centre de la Imatge is holding an exhibition on her, exploring the issues of desire and sensuality during the surrealist era. Her photographic work, especially the self-portraits showing her in various outfits, is considered a precursor to the work of the famous photographer Cindy Sherman, among La others.
