Surrealism & Duchamp

27.3 2013 – 17.8 2014


Surrealism & Duchamp is Moderna Museet’s next instalment in the dialogue between Duchamp and other artists in the Museum’s outstanding 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.
