Surrealism in Egypt

Egyptian Surrealism from the 1930s and 1940s is on display at the Tate Liverpool, reports The Guardian with a review (scroll halfway down the article), which name-checks the cosmopolitan group’s manifesto titled “Long Live Degenerate Art” and carries images of key works. “Egyptian surrealism is a thing apart. It turns the country’s long coastline into a theatre of wild events; mocks the absurdity of cat gods; shows women as brave rebels rather than the passively [redacted] objects of Parisian surrealism. The photographers … got to the heart of Egypt’s double life as a culture simultaneously ancient and modern.” You can also check out the Tate Liverpool’s site for the exhibition here.
