    We will be joined by representatives from the British Embassy in Berne, both of our Universities and other associations with whom we have close links.

    Dress code - cocktail chic or college blazers will help us celebrate in a fitting way. Check the weather before you come - will be cooler later in the evening.

    University of Kent alumni have kindly invited OUSP members to their annual "potluck picnic" as a prelude to the Fête de la Musique this Friday 21 June.

    The event starts at 6:30pm on the Pelouse du Luxembourg (opposite the Palais du Luxembourg). The Kent group will be clearly identified - and it is a bring-your-own event.

    The Jardin closes at 9:30pm so those attending will be expected to go musically on their way.

    About the event:

    The modern world that burst upon Paris during the inter-war years was not just an artistic revolution that questioned and destroyed perceived convention, it was also the fruit of philosophy. First, the Dada movement founded in Zurich by artists such as Tristan Tzara and Hans Arp, and then Surrealism under the aegis of André Breton, drawing into its vortex artists and intellectuals including René Magritte, Man Ray, Max Ernst and Salvador Dali.

    About the speaker:

    Dr Alyce Mahon, fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, Reader (Professor) in Modern and Contemporary Art History. Dr Mahon specialises in the dynamic between the body and the body politic in modern art, photography and film, from Dada to Surrealism and the sixties. Author of Surrealism and the Politics of Eros, and curator of a major exhibition now showing at Tate Modern on Surrealist Dorothea Tanning.
