Brussels is the land of surrealism and its inhabitants make it a way of
life that is shared by its museums and surrealist locations. In reaction to
artists who had only done neo-something, Magritte, Scutenaire, Mariën and
their visionary friends created new images, a new language. Words and
objects no longer correspond. The artists formed a tight-knit, interactive
group that organised spontaneous events and fake conferences, as well as
other subversive activities. Surrealism was born in and will leave its
poetic impression on Brussels.
