Exquisite Corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavreexquis), is a chance-based parlor game by which images are collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed. Popularized by Surrealist Artists like André Breton, Yves Tanguy, Joan Miró, and Man Ray, the Exquisite Corpse was a perfect creative tool, involving elements of chance, unseen elements, and group collaboration- all in service of disrupting the waking mind’s penchant for order.
