‘Histoire de ne pas rire. Surrealism in Belgium’

Now →
16 June'24

Bozar is celebrating 100 years of surrealism with an exhibition on Belgium’s famous avant-garde movement spanning no less than 60 years. 1924: as in Paris, surrealist activities also start in our country with bold pamphlets by artists including poet Paul Nougé, who guides this exhibition.

Belgium’s quirky surrealists go beyond the purely aesthetic – they want to transform the world with their subversive art. In Histoire de ne pas rire, we pay extra attention to their international interactions, political-historical background, and important women artists. Includes works by Paul Nougé, René Magritte, Jane Graverol, Marcel Mariën, Rachel Baes, Leo Dohmen, Paul Delvaux, Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, Salvador Dalí, Giorgio De​​​​​​​ Chirico, and many others.

 

The catalog is available for purchase at Bozar Bookshop in both Dutch and French.
​​​​​​​This catalog was published by Bozar Books / Fonds Mercator.

Don't forget to visit the exhibition IMAGINE! 100 Years of International Surrealism at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Buy a duo ticket and experience both exhibitions for only €29.
