Description

Photographs of René Magritte and the Belgian Surrealist group. Au seuil de la liberté
/ The Threshold of Liberty (1930). Another painting with quote from Magritte on there being "nothing symbolic" about painting heard over. The Pleasure Principle (Portrait of Edward James) (1937). Le Modèle Rouge (1935). La Reproduction interdite (Portrait d'Edward James) (1937). Time Transfixed / La Durée poignardée (1938). Some of Alberto Giacometti’s "objects"; "Everyone who saw his ‘objects’ experienced a strong but indefinable sexual emotion … of disturbance…" Photograph of Duchamp as Rrose Sélavy ("much easier" to change sex than change his name, he said). Caption offers different interpretations of the name. Commentary suggests that "love is celebrated as the supreme surreal moment…" Man Ray’s Self Portrait with View Camera (1932), Glass Tears / Larmes (c.1933), Fingers (1930), Solarization (1929); other photographs including portrait of Jacqueline Goddard (1930), portrait of Lee Miller (1929); VO quotes translation of Paul Eluard’s poem, L'Amoureuse / Woman in Love (c.1926). Duchamp as Belle Haleine (1921). Extract from Entr’acte in which Duchamp plays chess with Man Ray. Animation of Tanguy eating live spiders while Duchamp and Man Ray play chess behind him, joined by Dali in diving suit, with Benjamin Peret insulting passing priests in the background. French Communist Party rallies. Actor Breton tells a CP representative who asks why if he’s a Marxist, he remains a Surrealist, that subjective needs are just as important as material ones, and that it is impossible for "a bourgeois art" to "translate the workers’ aspirations". They argue about the correct way to proceed.
