Surrealism is defined by Breton in his book ‘Manifesto of Surrealism’ (1924). Within this book, he states that the movement’s defining principle was “psychic automatism” meaning that thought derived from “any control exercised by reason, exempt from any aesthetic or moral concern.” Overall, the main intention of ‘Manifesto of Surrealism’ is to escape both the past and everyday reality.

Theoretical attempts to iron down the meaning and implications of the grotesque have addressed it alternately as a quality of media or as a quality of interaction with media, or even alternatively as a quality of the act of mediation itself. As a quality of media the grotesque has proven particularly susceptible to the conceptual fluctuations of history. Kayser,(1981) the father of modern grotesque theory, identifies the definition of the term as the central issue in the study of it, assessing it himself as the appearance of a reality that is simultaneously of and opposed to the worlds in which its audience take part.

He explores the links between Dadaism, Surrealism and postmodernism; all in which photography is a medium heavily used. We see influences from famous Dadaist and Surrealist photographers such as Man Ray, Alfred Steiglitz, Marcel Duchamp and Brassai - indeed, some of these photographers overlap into postmodernism; for example, Alfred Steiglitz’s photographs of Marcel Duchamp’s “Fountain” is a prime example of this. Sherrie Levine went on to appropriate Marcel Duchamp’s readymades. Whilst Dadaism was a political movement, and Surrealism a philosophical movement, both centred on deconstruction and re-representation - just like postmodernism. Foster goes through an explanation of modernism in order to be able to define postmodernism, and how postmodernism is a natural evolution: artists must move on from traditional methods of expression in order to continue making challenging works.
