Before talking about Surrealism in
Latin America it is
necessary to explain what Surrealism is. Surrealism is an artistic,
philosophical, intellectual and political movement that aimed to break down the
boundaries of rationalization to access the imaginative subconscious. It is a
descendent of the Dadaism
movement, which disregarded tradition and the use of conscious form in favor of
the ridiculous. First gaining popularity in the 1920s and founded by ,
the approach relies on Freudian psychological concepts. Andre Breton
Proponents of surrealism believed that the subconscious was the best inspiration for art. They thought that the ideas and images within the subconscious mind was more “true” or “real” than the concepts or pictures the rational mind could create. Under this philosophy, even the ridiculous had extreme value and could provide better insights into a culture or a person’s desires, likes or fears.
