Abstract: Salvador Dalí (1904—1989) is one of the most famous and controversial artists of the twentieth century. He is also the artist most widely associated with the Surrealist movement, though that connection was more fraught than many people realize. This course will study the development of Surrealist art and thought, keeping in mind that for its practitioners Surrealism was – and remains – foremost a revolution, striving to "transform the world" (Marx) and "change life" (Rimbaud). We will examine writings and ideas underlying key works by artists such as Magritte and Max Ernst; watch Surrealist films; take part in Surrealist activities; and play Surrealist “games of chance”. After week four, we will concentrate on Dalí’s life and art in context, assessing his relationship with Surrealism and other art movements as well as his continued relevance (and popularity) today. N.b., Although we will attempt to adhere as closely as possible to this syllabus, details are subject to change.
