Surrealism under Pressure 1938-1953
Czech poet and photographer Jind?ich Heisler (1914-1953) joined the Czech Surrealist Group in 1938, just as Nazi occupation of the country was driving the movement and Czech artists underground. Heisler published his first book of poetry a year later. In his brief and courageous career ? Heisler died suddenly at the age of thirty-eight ? he produced some of the most remarkable assemblage work of the Surrealist movement.
