Summary: "Explicitly looking through a lens inflected by the recent interest in synaesthetic and haptic approaches to visuality, Janine Mileaf's Please Touch delineates a new history of Dada and Surrealism by focusing on a relation of touch (literal or imagined) evoked by the groups' found and constructed objects. Among other things, this novel strategy provides a compelling way of rethinking the transition between Dada (with its humorous or aggressive approach to artmaking) and Surrealism (with its turn to the erotic), and between the European arms of these movements and the US-based versions. Mileaf's book is both lucid and compelling; moving beyond models of art that restrict interpretation to the visual regime by calling upon the sensual effects of the works themselves, Please Touch shifts the framework through which histories of modern art will be told.".

Riassunto: Touch suggests a broad range of physical, intellectual, and emotional connections that serve to undermine the dominance of vision in histories of modernism. By exploding notions of the very nature of art, the artists considered in this beautifully illustrated monograph introduced fundamentally new conceptions of subjectivity and engagement for the modernist era. While offering an entertaining and engaging history of dada and surrealism, Please Touch presents a persuasive argument highlighting the role of "tactility," which it defines as a decentralized, fragmented, and intimate form of knowing. In this compelling volume, Janine Mileaf offers the first full-length consideration of Marcel Duchamp's readymades and their profound legacy in the transatlantic context of dada and surrealism. This book embraces a broad range of art objects: consumer items such as the urinal and bottlerack that Duchamp "sneaked" into art exhibits; flea-market assemblages fabricated by his interwar avant-garde successors Man Ray, Andre Breton, Salvador Dali, Meret Oppenheim, and others; and the bricolage boxes of American surrealist Joseph Cornell.

Please Touch is an intriguing exploration of some of the twentieth century's most important art and artists that will appeal to a broad range of art historians and interdisciplinary scholars.

L'autore: JANINE MILEAF is an associate professor of art history at Swarthmore College.
