Surrealism, Freud and The World of Dreams

SURREALISM, FREUD AND THE WORLD OF DREAMS Digital Design for the Web Surrealism The practice of producing fantastic imagery or effects in art, literature, film, or

theater by means of unnatural or irrational juxtapositions and combinations. Approaching Puberty (1921) Max Ernst Mixed Media

Dada Dadaism was seen as a protest against the bourgeois nationalist, as well as colonialist interests which were believed to be the root of the first world war. The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even

(1915-1923) Marcel Duchamp Mixed Media Andr Breton Andr Breton studied Freudian therapeutic techniques which he used on soldiers in hopes that they would better deal with their

trauma. His true interest however lay in poetry and the arts. The Seer (1915) Georgio de Chirico Oil on Canvas Surrealism is not a style. It is the cry of a mind

turning back on itself. Antonin Artaud Surrealism sought communication with the irrational and illogical, deliberately disorienting and reorienting the

conscious, by means of the unconscious. The Anti-Pope (1942) Max Ernst Oil on Canvas The art world had been forever changed by the

visions bequeathed from the omnipotence of the dream world. Giraffe on Fire (1937) Salvador Dal Oil on Canvas Jean Martin-Charcot

and Sigmund Freud Jean Martin-Charcot was Sigmund Freuds teacher, and had a great deal of influence over Freud, and the course of study he

undertook regarding the study of the human mind. Meditation on the Harp (1932-1934) Salvador Dal Oil on Canvas Freud practiced self analysis, and

over time became overwhelmed with the power of the imaginary and the sway of pictures that came to dominate his conscious thoughts. Untitled (Tamara Toumanova), (1940) Joseph Cornell

Mixed Media Collage The mind which plunges into Surrealism, relives with burning excitement the best part of childhood. ANDRE BRETON, Surrealist Manifesto, 1924 Dreams provide a continuous,

symbolic commentary in our internal psychological (and sometimes physical) functions whenever language fails to convey a particular inner experience, dream imagery can capture it vividly and authentically

The Robing of the Bride (1940) Max Ernst Oil on Canvas Metamorphosis of Narcissus (1936-1937) Salvador Dal Oil on Canvas Conceptualizing dream imagery as a metaphorical narrative is analogous to

understanding the underlying meaning of an abstract painting. Myron L. Gluckman M.D. While we now have a better understanding of the inner workings of the unconscious mind, much of it is still

speculation. Carte Blanche (1965) Ren Magritte Oil on Canvas Doll (1934) Hans Bellmer Mixed Media

Dreams can develop from feelings of anxiety that the dreamer may or may not be aware of. We watch our dreams in the theater of the night. Sigmund Freud Yellow Sand Fountain (1955) Joseph Cornell Mixed Media

Part of the Overwhelming (2009) Danielle Feige Mixed Media Close-up Part of the Overwhelming Freud's influence can be felt the world over, even today. He sought

inspiration from his teachers, and in return inspired others, not just in the world of psychotherapy, but also in the world of art. The surrealist movement was not just a product of previous styles inflicted with the cultural up-lashing of the time, but rather a movement of self discovery. By allowing the flow of ideas from the unconscious mind to the conscious, we have grown, and will continue to grow, for the betterment of ourselves, and for our art.

"The mind which plunges into Surrealism, relives with burning excitement the best part of childhood." Andre Breton fini
