Art does not fall obediently into the categories we have created; in fact, it tends to evaporate as soon as its name is uttered, preferring to travel incognito. Its best moments are when it is unconscious of being art.

When Hitler came to power, the German artist Hans BELLMER (born March 13, 1902 in Katowice, [part of the then German Federal Empire] and died February 23, 1975 in Paris) engaged in a subversive process that aimed to undermine the myth of anatomical perfection extolled by the Third Reich. He dismembered the body of his doll and rebuilt it in incongruous combinations that evoked a feeling of “uncanny strangeness” described by Freud.

Surrealist photography was officially born in 1924 with the movement Manifesto by André Breton. The thirst for new experiences which inspired the surrealist oeuvre sustained the exploration of the photographic medium in various forms. Man Ray’s solarization involving exposing the negative to light, Raoul Ubac’s brûlages, Pierre Molinier’s photomontages or André Kertész’s mirror effects are all examples of techniques which de-realise subjects and objects, giving them an element of mystery…Surrealist beauty is irrational and coincidental, marvellous and convulsive.

« Begierde im Blick » (the Gaze of Desire) is the main theme of the major exhibition on surrealist photography held at the Kunsthalle, Hamburg running until 29 May 2005.An element of the surrealism movement since its beginnings in 1924, photography allowed to capture images and sensations taken from « real » life. For MAN RAY, Jacques-André BOIFFARD, Hans BELLMER, Manuel ÁLVAREZ BRAVO, Raoul UBAC, André KERTÉSZ, Herbert BAYER and Claude CAHUN, photography provided a way to present a surrealist vision of the world: an impossible reality.
