Surreal Documents is an English-language blog with wide-ranging interests (from surrealism to Black Metal) by Dutch writer Valter. Its title was probably inspired by Georges Bataille's Documents.

Surreal Documents was interested in the darker strains of anthropology and ethnography, citing such authors as Michael Taussig.

In 2008, its author used David Toop's Exotica as a conceptual framework[1].

Excerpt on coq-à-l'âne

Genealogically, one can link the Medieval coq-à-l'âne to the Renaissance works of Rabelais, to Paul Scheerbart, Christian Morgenstern, Lewis Carroll, Pétrus Borel, Molière, Quirinus Kuhlmann, the Russian and Italian Futurists, and the Dadaists - and from there to 'Les Légions Noires'.
