No Exit’s Year of Surreality – The Unconscious (Winter 2023)

What’s in a dream? For the Surrealists, a lot. They believed that the rationalism of modern society stifled and ultimately suppressed the imagination. Surrealists sought to tap into the unconscious mind, that part of ourselves which is not bound by reason and logic, and not subject to the taboos and morals dictated by society. In doing so, they endeavored to unleash the power of the imagination and access a superior reality (sur réalisme). This would be a new kind of emancipation, one in which the creativity of the unconscious mind is unshackled
and boundless.
