Episode number 5 of Series “The Shock of the New Series”.
The desire for absolute freedom appeared aesthetically as Surrealism where the mystery and melancholy of dreams could renew art and life, producing strange encounters between objects. The Surrealists, traitors to the Bourgeoisie, admirers of de Sade, preached supremacy of desire. However, they were soon absorbed into ‘chic’, and became what they had originally set out to reject - a style.
