Surrealism had the ambition to reinvent man and society in the early 1920s. The fundamental idea of surrealism is to no longer trust one's reason, but to create outside of any aesthetic or moral concerns, in a semi-conscious state. Using incongruous collages, rubbings and exquisite cadavers, surrealist paintings conjure up fantastic universes, bizarre beings and hybrid objects that are all the more disturbing because they have one foot in reality and its representation. A reader of Freud, André Breton theorised surrealism by transposing his conviction that the true workings of the human mind can be understood by allowing unconscious thoughts to express themselves. In 1924, the journal "La Révolution surréaliste" was created and the "Bureau de recherches surréalistes" was opened, whose mission was to study the unconscious.
It was the publication of the "Manifesto of Surrealism" in the same year that established Surrealist art. Created in Paris, the Surrealist movement quickly spread throughout the world. Breton's grand project attracted a multitude of talents, artists and intellectuals: painters Dali, Magritte, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Victor Brauner... The ideas of surrealism were eventually recognised by critics and the public, as confirmed by the success of the International Surrealist Exhibition in Paris. The Second World War led to the dispersal of the group and put an end to the movement, which was not officially dissolved until 1969.
