Exhibition Surrealism and Magic
Grade 8 students went on an Art trip to the Barberini Museum in Potsdam. The exhibition Surrealism and Magic: Enchanted Modernity is the first large-scale international loan exhibition to focus on the Surrealists’ interest in magic and myth. Selected masterpieces by world-renowned artists such as Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, and René Magritte are featured alongside key works by painters that remain to be discovered by the larger museum-going public.The students took part in a tour of the exhibtion, had the chance to ask questions and participated in a workshop after the tour, where they were given the chance to create their own Surrealist artwork. The photos below show some examples of their creativity.
