Rejecting society’s standards and burrowing into deepest desires, Surrealism sought to attain a whole new realm of both art and experience. This introduction covers the key players and practices of one of the most influential and all-encompassing movements of the 20th century.

With Salvador Dalí as its figurehead, the great ship of Surrealism traversed the turbulent seas of the early 20th century with sails billowing with dreams and desires. Inspired by the psychoanalytical practice of Sigmund Freud, the Surrealists championed the unconscious as the domain of truth, uninhibited by the standards or expectations of society.

With techniques ranging from¬†hypnotism¬†to¬†nocturnal walks¬†to¬†automatic writing, the likes of¬†Andr√© Breton, Max Ernst, Brassa√Į,¬†and¬†Meret Oppenheim¬†produced paintings, drawings, texts, and films in which they sought to excavate their most intimate and primal instincts. The results abound with¬†sexual fantasies,¬†with¬†mysterious, menacing creatures, and with the juxtaposition of seemingly contradictory objects or ideas.

This book introduces the origins and the sensational legacy of the Surrealist movement, one of the most profound and enduring influences on film, theater, literature, art, and thought.

Featured artists: Hans Arp, André Breton, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Paul Klee, René Magritte, André Masson, Matta, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Meret Oppenheim, Yves Tanguy
