Description

This looks at the Surrealist movement of the 1920s and 30s from a political perspective, rather than from the usual standpoint of an artistic and cultural movement. It traces Surrealism from its origins in Dada, through the extraordinarily creative inter-war years and its stormy relationship with the Communist Party, to its present day legacy.show more
