There are some great exhibits at the Surrealism Beyond Borders exhibition at the Tate Modern.
I was, in particular, struck by how political the messaging was.
And given how strongly the ongoing propaganda campaigns of the banking, media, and military sectors have been waged over the last few weeks I think it is even more critical than ever to respect the historical political, economic, and anthropological dimensions in socially revolutionary art.
These are all aspects I was blind to while growing up. In today’s previous post I refer to our limited perception of numbers. The way we depict rational numbers as being of more relevance and significance than irrational numbers is a clue to the way we lie to ourselves and to each other. This can only lead to predictable irrationality, as we are mass programmed to comply with false realities.
