Surrealism and the Dream, exhibition
Tapping into the world of dreams.
The exhibition Surrealism and the Dream (El Surrealismo y el sueño) at the Thyssen Museum in Madrid will seek to show how Surrealism was more than just artistic movement: it fundamentally changed contemporary sensibility, thanks to the relationship between dreams and images.
Thus, paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures and photographs by the masters of surrealism such as André Breton, Salvador Dalí, Paul Delvaux, Yves Tanguy, Renée Magritte, André Masson, Max Ernst, Jean Arp, Claude Cahun and Paul Nougé will be presented from this angle. Indeed, along with automatic writing, the dream was proclaimed by the Surrealists as a fundamental method of liberating the psyche.
