about

From Nothingness to Dreams offers a vast survey of surrealism and Dada organized around ten brilliantly conceived themes that cut to the conceptual heart of both movements. These include The Dada Zero Degree of Art; Eros, Amour Fou, Erotic Transgression; The Unconscious; Sade, Freud, Marx,
Disquieting Muses of Surreal Living; and Was There a Surrealist Architecture? The book draws on the collection of the Boijmans Van Beuingen Museum in Rotterdam, which itself contains major works from the collection of Edward James, the British surrealist author and creator of Las Pozas in Mexico. In addition, it reproduces documents drawn from André Breton's famous library, including copies of Minotaure magazine with its articles by Breton, Bataille, Lacan and others, and covers designed by Picasso and Ernst—as well as films by Buñuel, Dalí and René Clair. Additional works by Duchamp, Man Ray, Arp, Picabia, Schwitters, Dalí, Magritte and others make this a uniquely considered overview of these two movements.
