The Association des Écrivains et Artistes Révolutionnaires (AEAR) was a French association of revolutionary artists and writers which existed between 1932 and 1939.

An association of the same name was created in 2006.

The AEAR was founded by communistic and communist sympathizing writers in March 1932 as the French section of the International Union of Revolutionary Writers, which was founded by the Comintern in the Soviet Union in 1930. Leading figures from day one were Paul Vaillant-Couturier, Léon Moussinac, Charles Vildrac and Francis Jourdain.

The members of the AEAR were engaged against war and fascism. The association had as well as the Fédération Musicale Populaire (FMP) a key role in regard to the integration of Soviet music in France. Organ of the AEAR was the journal "Commune".[1]
