Mature for Art
Original – copy – repetition

Surrealism is widely known as the movement which originated and flourished in Paris. However, it also developed in other European, and, following the end of the Second World War, non-European cities. As early as in 1925 the Belgian artists established a new group of surrealists – independent of Paris and its influences. They were joined by, among others, one René Magritte. In the 1930s Prague became an important centre of European Surrealism.
The lecture will offer a overview of the achievements by surrealist artists associated with, other than Paris, European centres of the movement. Special attention will be paid to the photography-related activities of the artists. An important point of reference will be provided by the photographs by Magritte displayed at the International Cultural Centre Gallery.
The lecture will be followed by a practical component. The participants will be invited to a discussion on René Magritte’s photographs and their links with the specimens of European surrealist photography shared with the audience during the formal lecture.
