From around 1900 onwards, it is chaos the art world. The new art is contrary anti-art. One of the movements that breaks away from traditions is surrealism. Surrealism plays with your brain. We see dream visions, childhood brain-inspired impulses and alienating images playing the leading role. Naturally influenced by Freud & Jung and psychoanalysis. In this course, our teacher will make clear the power of this art movement through the great surrealists like Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, René Magritte, Joan Miró, but also highlight the lesser-known yet influential surrealists. Indeed, Surrealism was the first movement that also included many female artists such as Hannah Höch, Leonora Carrington and Frida Kahlo, and a movement that specifically flourished in Utrecht with the likes of Joop Moesman and Pyke Koch. All this complemented by related movements such as Dadaism and Magic Realism, will give you at the end of the course a complete picture of this bizarre but extraordinary art!
