Surrealism, artists and art
(movement, early 1920's - 1930's)
Let us not mince words: the marvelous is always beautiful. anything marvelous is beautiful, in fact only the marvelous is beautiful. Andre Breton, 1924
Surrealist Game: Questions and Responses
Divide into two groups, everyone has slips of paper. One half writes a (unanswered) question; The other half writes a (questionless) response. Put the slips into two piles and randomly match questions with responses. Examples:
• Why can't you kiss your elbow? We do it with three blowfish, engorged beyond repair.
• Do you prefer creamy or crunchy peanut butter? More people have been to Russia than I.
• Can people negate their egos? Fix it with a tourniquet.
