INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION 2010 SURREALISM NOW
We are at a crossroads. At the time of this introduction, humanity is in dire need for the desire of surrealist revolution, that is, the revolution of the mind. The men and women of today, around the world, are all caught up in the dynamics of globalization, new-order imperialism, climate change (and the ongoing wars and occupations in the Middle East), illustrates that the reigns of logic, rationalism and the justification of the mechanisms of the past, need to be fought against at all costs, and the need to win is without question. Surrealism is that weapon, or shall I say, that ‘weapon of desire’ to liberate humanity from the clutches of empire, establishment, and the formula of capitalism, etc. It is not a matter of aesthetic or sensory pleasure that is going to be on exhibit here, what you, the visitor will see is the ongoing achievements (and possibilities) of the surrealist explorations that have been in effect since surrealism’s conception from the last century under the direction of our founder Andre Breton.
