Surrealism and the Dream

"Kiki de Montparnasse and a Friend behind Giacometti’s Plaster Sculpture of 1932" by Man Ray is reproduced from the new release Surrealism and the Dream, published by Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. In his catalog essay, José Jiménez writes, "Surrealism transmits an intense affirmation of freedom, the hope for a human life of plenitude, the utopia of a mind in command of all its possibilities. In that sense the Surrealist invocation of the dream must be understood, first and foremost, as the manifestation of a revolt against the 'realistic' acceptance of an 'ill-made' world, against an attitude of resigned acceptance of pain and suffering. The Surrealist invocation of the dream transmits a utopia of total liberation of the mind, the dream of a freedom without limits."
