The subversive visual programme of the Surrealists was expressed in the interplay of the contradictions, with the goal of radically dismantling the expectations of the hitherto experienced. Today, in a time shaped by increasingly impenetrable and contradictory fragments of information, a new generation of artists is rediscovering the multifarious poetic stylistic devices of Surrealism. Using a disparate, curious and ambiguous aesthetic, they respond to our uncertain and long since incomprehensible world. This exhibition catalogue The Ear of Giacometti evokes the main lines of development of central (post-)Surrealist themes and is richly illustrated with images from classical and contemporary Surrealist art. Artists include: Hans Bellmer, Peter Blake, Louise Bourgeois, Joseph Cornell, Salvador Dali, Damien Hirst, Rene Magritte, Joan Miro, Meret Oppenheim, Man Ray, and Daniel Spoerri. Published on the occasion of the exhibition at Levy Galerie, Hamburg, November 2010 - February 2011.
