Surrealism & Duchamp is Moderna Museetís next instalment in the dialogue between Duchamp and other artists in the Museumís collection.
1920s and 1930s surrealism is one of the principal movements in modernist art and literature. The surrealists eschewed rational reality and Ė inspired by Sigmund Freudís psychoanalysis Ė embraced irrationality and the hidden, darker sides of the human mind. The show features unique works by Salvador DalŪ, Joan Mirů, Meret Oppenheim, Giorgio de Chirico, Hans Arp, Dorothea Tanning, Max Ernst and others. In addition to famous paintings and sculptures, visitors can discover surrealist objects, films and photographs, which were new artistic media in the 1920s.
