The Avant-Garde Study Group is a forum for discussing the historical avant-garde (Futurism, Dada, Surrealism, etc.) as well as other forms of experimentation in 19th and 20th-century art. We look at work in a range of disciplines, including but not limited to literature, painting, sculpture, photography, music, film, dance and performance.
We meet every other week during term time at the Birkbeck School of Arts. Our sessions are open to all, run collectively and shaped by the interests of the participants.
