Surrealism & Duchamp is Moderna Museet’s next instalment in the dialogue between Duchamp and other artists in the Museum’s collection.
1920s and 1930s surrealism is one of the principal movements in modernist art and literature. The surrealists eschewed rational reality and – inspired by Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis – embraced irrationality and the hidden, darker sides of the human mind. The show features unique works by Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró, 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.
