How is surreal writing perceived

Fantastic women. Surreal worlds from Meret Oppenheim to Frida Kahlo

The exhibition focuses on female artists who were directly connected to the surrealist movement founded in Paris in 1924, albeit sometimes only for a short time: they were personally acquainted with André Breton, exhibited with the group, or theoretically dealt with the surrealist ideas.

With 34 artists from 11 countries, a diverse spectrum is represented

With around 260 impressive paintings, works on paper, sculptures, photographs and films by 34 artists from 11 countries, the show covers a diverse spectrum of styles and content. In addition to well-known names such as Louise Bourgeois, Claude Cahun, Leonora Carrington, Frida Kahlo, Meret Oppenheim or Dorothea Tanning, numerous unknown, exciting personalities such as Toyen, Alice Rahon or Kay Sage from more than three decades of surrealist art can be discovered. You will be presented at the Schirn with a representative selection of your work. The exhibition also reflects networks and friendships between the artists in Europe, the USA and Mexico. The large overview exhibition extends over the entire length of both galleries and presents the artists of surrealism with a representative selection of works and also in topographical spaces.
