Trebuchet Issue 8: Contemporary Surrealism
Is surrealism finished? Writer Edward Winters suggests that, like conceptual art, surrealism may have hit a cultural peak and has thus dissipated creatively into widespread acceptance, that it might be ‘over, yet everywhere’.
From billboards to fiction, it has become so common to include elements that touch on the unreal, odd corners of the psyche, or on psychological themes, that their absence is often more remarkable than their inclusion. So, the challenge in this issue is to investigate what surrealism means now.
