Objects of desire. Surrealism and design 1924-2020

From February 28 to June 7, 2020 in CaixaForum Barcelona

In 1924 André Breton published the Surrealist Manifesto, thus kicking off one of the most prominent and influential avant-garde movements. Surrealism manifested itself in different disciplines such as literature, cinema and the fine arts.

This exhibition presented by CaixaForum Barcelona, produced and organized with the Vitra Design Museum, highlights the great influence of surrealism in design.

The exhibition includes pieces of different formats: paintings, sculptures, posters, magazines, books, photographs and historical films. They are presented from Duchamp's ready-mades to Dalí's sculpture objects, including works by Giorgio de Chirico, Le Corbusier, Meret Oppenheim, Gae Aulenti and Achille Castiglioni among many others.

Below you will find the bibliography related to the exhibition.
