a new magazine manifesting

surrealism’s continuing creative luminescence

“It is ironic that those who like to refer to surrealism’s ‘legacy’ look anywhere but to surrealism itself for its continuity.”

“Today, surrealism’s dynamic has many vectors throughout the world, not only in the form of various organised groups, and in their activities and projections into the public sphere, but also in those individuals who prefer to adventure alone.”

“…what distinguishes such practices that are termed ‘surrealist’ is a question of intention and of intelligence, propelled from within a social, political and moral dimension; it is thus, moreover, a sensibility, a way of looking at and acting upon the world.”
