If you have ever wondered how the surrealists themselves saw their artistic and cultural movement this exhibition could provide you with the answers. It includes works by some of the extremely influential writers, artists, activists, directors and revolutionaries who forged a common outlook together in Paris shortly after WWI. Put together by the Centre de Cultura Contempornia de Barcelona the organisers present their take on the revolution of images and ideas, which aimed at a complete liberation of the human individual. The Surrealists ideas about awareness and representation are well covered among the 370 pieces of work included in the exhibition. Known as the place of desire to the Surrealists, Paris is the particular focus of attention and a major feature of the exhibition. The exhibits on display include painting, sculpture, photography, film and other numerous objet dart spawned by the Surrealists.
