What is Surrealism?

Surrealism, an influential art, and cultural movement, emerged in Europe after World War I. This avant-garde movement aimed to unlock the unconscious mind, leading to the creation of dreamlike and illogical scenes that challenge our perceptions of reality. According to André Breton, the leader of the Surrealist movement, the goal was to "resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality, or surreality."

The Origins of Surrealism

The term "Surrealism" was first coined by Guillaume Apollinaire in 1917. However, it wasn't until the publication of the Surrealist Manifesto by André Breton in October 1924 that the movement gained its official status. This manifesto succeeded in establishing Surrealism over a rival faction led by Yvan Goll, who had also published a surrealist manifesto just weeks earlier. Paris, France, became the epicenter of the movement, which soon spread globally, influencing visual arts, literature, film, and music.

Techniques and Influence

Surrealist artists developed various techniques to tap into the unconscious mind and chance occurrences. These include:

  • Automatic drawing: Creating art without conscious planning, allowing the subconscious to guide the hand.
  • Frottage: Rubbing materials over textured surfaces to create spontaneous designs.
  • Grattage: Scratching paint off the canvas to reveal hidden layers.
  • Decalcomania: Pressing paint between surfaces to create unpredictable patterns.
