    Surrealist journals were integral to the exchange of ideas, images, and debates between artists and writers. MoMA bibliographer David Senior takes us through a section of the library's expansive Éluard-Dausse Collection of rare journals and surrealist ephemera. The collection was established in 1936 when Alfred H. Barr Jr. acquired the surrealist libraries of Paul Éluard and Damille Dausse, bringing the activities of European surrealists to wider attention in New York.
