Surrealist_Manifesto

One of our main references is the Surrealist_Manifesto by André Breton.

A few quotes we are dialoguing with:

‘… We are still living under the reign of logic …’

‘But in this day and age logical methods are applicable only to solving problems of secondary interest. The absolute rationalism that is still in vogue allows us to consider only facts relating directly to our experience.’

 

‘I have always been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more credence and attaches so much more importance to waking events than those occurring in dreams.’

 

‘It´s because human, when she/he ceases to sleep, is above all a plaything of her/his memory, and in its normal state memory takes pleasure in weakly retracing for her/him the circumstances of the dream, in stripping it of any real importance and in dismissing the only determinant from the point where she/he thinks she/he has left it a few hours before; this firm hope, this concern. She/he is under the impression of continuing something that is worthwhile. Thus the dream finds itself reduced to a mere parenthesis and like the night, dreams generally contribute little to furthering our understanding.’

 

‘The mind of the human who dreams is fully satisfied by what happens to her/him. The agonising question of possibility is no longer pertinent. KILL, FLY FASTER, LOVE TO YOUR HEART’S CONTENT, let yourself be carried along, events will not tolerate your interference. you are nameless. The ease of everything is priceless.’

 

‘I believe in the future resolution of these two states, dream and reality, which are seemingly so contradictory, into a kind of a absolute reality, a ‘Surreality’.’André_Breton.JPG
