MetadataShow full item record
The present article highlights the existence of the Surrealist group Rupture and its activity in La Louvière, Belgium, and in the province of Hainaut in the years 1934 through to 1935. The peculiarity of this movement, compared to the surrealist movement in Brussels, is that it contains an anarchist and revolutionary component and ideology, with different connotations and some peculiar features at variance with the Belgian streamline. Thus, art is transformed into the best excuse to liberate the revolutionary conscience of the proletarians willing to transform society. This movement has not been extensively studied outside the core surrealist movement of Belgium located mainly in Brussels. The present research study will disclose to the reader who the main representatives of the group are: Achille Chavée, Marcel Havrenne, Albert Ludé and Marcel Parfondry. Later Fernand Dumond joined the group of Mons. The principal artistic manifestations of Rupture will also be exhibited in the Surrealist exhibition of La Louvière in 1934, together with the birth of the journal Mauvais Temps in 1935 that published only one number and very few copies.
