Transcript of "Surrealism, Freud And The World Of Dreams"

  1. 1. SURREALISM, FREUD AND THE WORLD OF DREAMS By Danielle Feige For Prof. Marco Deyasi Art 508 Department of Art and Design University of Idaho April 23, 2009
  2. 2. Surrealism The practice of producing fantastic imagery or effects in art, literature, film, or theater by means of unnatural or irrational juxtapositions and combinations. Approaching Puberty (1921) Max Ernst Mixed Media
  3. 3. Dada Dadaism was seen as a protest against the bourgeois nationalist, as well as colonialist interests which were believed to be the root of the first world war. The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (1915-1923) Marcel Duchamp Mixed Media
  4. 4. André Breton André Breton studied Freudian therapeutic techniques which he used on soldiers in hopes that they would better deal with their trauma. His true interest however lay in poetry and the arts. The Seer (1915) Georgio de Chirico Oil on Canvas
  5. 5. “Surrealism is not a style. It is the cry of a mind turning back on itself.” Antonin Artaud
  6. 6. “Surrealism sought communication with the irrational and illogical, deliberately disorienting and reorienting the conscious, by means of the unconscious.” The Anti-Pope (1942) Max Ernst Oil on Canvas
  7. 7. The art world had been forever changed by the visions bequeathed from the omnipotence of the dream world. Giraffe on Fire (1937) Salvador Dalí Oil on Canvas
  8. 8. Jean Martin-Charcot and Sigmund Freud Jean Martin-Charcot was Sigmund Freud’s teacher, and had a great deal of influence over Freud, and the course of study he undertook regarding the study of the human mind. Meditation on the Harp (1932-1934) Salvador Dalí Oil on Canvas
  9. 9. Freud practiced self analysis, and over time became overwhelmed with the “power of the imaginary and the sway of pictures that came to dominate” his conscious thoughts. Untitled (Tamara Toumanova), (1940) Joseph Cornell Mixed Media Collage
  10. 10. The mind which plunges into Surrealism, relives with burning excitement the best part of childhood. ANDRE BRETON, Surrealist Manifesto, 1924
  11. 11. “Dreams provide a continuous, symbolic commentary in our internal psychological (and sometimes physical) functions whenever language fails to convey a particular inner experience, dream imagery can capture it vividly and authentically…” The Robing of the Bride (1940) Max Ernst Oil on Canvas
  12. 12. Metamorphosis of Narcissus (1936-1937) Salvador Dalí Oil on Canvas
  13. 13. “Conceptualizing dream imagery as a metaphorical narrative is analogous to understanding the underlying meaning of an abstract painting.” Myron L. Gluckman M.D.
  14. 14. While we now have a better understanding of the inner workings of the unconscious mind, much of it is still speculation. Carte Blanche (1965) René Magritte Oil on Canvas
  15. 15. Doll (1934) Hans Bellmer Mixed Media Dreams can develop from feelings of anxiety that the dreamer may or may not be aware of.
  16. 16. “We watch our dreams in the theater of the night.” Sigmund Freud Yellow Sand Fountain (1955) Joseph Cornell Mixed Media
  17. 17. Part of the Overwhelming (2009) Danielle Feige Mixed Media
  18. 18. Close-up… Part of the Overwhelming
  19. 19. Freud's influence can be felt the world over, even today. He sought inspiration from his teachers, and in return inspired others, not just in the world of psychotherapy, but also in the world of art. The surrealist movement was not just a product of previous styles inflicted with the cultural up-lashing of the time, but rather a movement of self discovery. By allowing the flow of ideas from the unconscious mind to the conscious, we have grown, and will continue to grow, for the betterment of ourselves, and for our art. quot;The mind which plunges into Surrealism, relives with burning excitement the best part of childhood.quot; Andre Breton
