TOMKA BONG

by ELKA BONG

"Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau."
~ André Breto

Surrealists first played the game "Exquisite Corpse" at Bretons house in Montparnasse, 54 rue du Château (no longer existing). Besides himself, Breton mentions Marcel Duhamel, Jacque Prévert, Yves Tanguy and Benjamin Péret as original participants. Henry Miller often played the game to pass time in French cafés during the 1930s
