The course offers a close examination of two of the century's
most radical art movements: Dada and Surrealism.  Dada, which had
its origins during the First World War, launched an all-out
attack on existing social and cultural institutions through a
celebration of chance, disorder, and madness.  Surrealism, which
took shape in Paris after the war, began as a series of
experiments designed to bring to the surface images and impulses
from the artist's subconscious; this early period of experiment
developed into a twenty-year effort to liberate art from the
confines of established visual languages.
