Unlock Art: Exploring the Surreal

Unlock Art: Exploring the Surreal

In Unlock Art: Exploring the Surreal, the latest Doctor in the, Peter Capaldi investigates how psychoanalysis and the unconscious mind shaped the Surrealist movement. The film examines the key players including Miro, Ernst and Dali and explores how the movement’s playful yet sometimes disturbing nature impacted contemporary culture and society; from art and theatre through to pop, humour and even politics.

Unlock Art is a collaboration between Tate and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts which aims to take viewers on a journey through various art movements and themes, from the history of the nude and humour in art, to Surrealism and Pop – offering the need-to-know facts, and making the arts more accessible to a wider audience.
