On Monday, October 14 from 7pm, the opening of the exhibition "But live here? No thanks. Surrealism + Anti-Facism" will take place. Lenbachhaus Munich cordially invites you and your friends.

"The human soul is international."
(Bulletin international du surréalisme, Prague, April 1935)

Surrealism was an internationalist political movement. Surrealists denounced European colonial policies, they organized to resist against fascist governments and movements, they fought for the Spanish Republic, were persecuted, escaped into exile, died in the war against National Socialists.
They wrote poetry, honed the deconstruction of an ostensibly rational language in an ostensibly rational world, they worked on paintings and collective drawings, they made photographs, and collages. As an allied method for emancipatory causes, Surrealism has been revisited in 1968, and by the Black Civil Rights Movement.
The exhibition at the Lenbachhaus sees itself as an attempt to revise a still narrowly defined and politically trivialized surrealist canon and to answer the question anew: What is Surrealism?
