Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.

Surrealism is a state of mind! It's not a style. Just as diverse as the movement’s representatives is the range of themes with which the Surrealists rebelled against the bourgeoisie, the state, politics or the Church through the medium of art. The Surrealists met regularly in Paris during the 1920s, composed manifestos, published newspapers. They discussed political developments as well as psychoanalysis, a new concept at the time, and used its findings as impulses for changing society through different artistic mediums. Meanwhile, their ideas spread throughout Europe and North and Central America. Now, through 34 female artists from 11 countries, the SCHIRN is shedding light for the first time on the contribution women made to Surrealism up until the 1970s.
