Invented by the Surrealists in 1925, Cadavre Exquis (Exquisite Corpse) is a game where a player receives a random word, elaborates on its references and possible implications, and then chooses a new word to hand over to the next player. The game (similar to the parlor game called “Consequences” where players take turns writing on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal the written part, and pass it on to the next player) is used as a strategy for automatic writing aimed at spontaneity, chance, unconscious associations and different modes of public address.
