  Salvador Dali once said, “I am not strange. I am just normal.” The era of surrealism began in 1920 just after World War I. People were very interested in conquering their subconscious in order to improve their reality. There were many psychological breakthroughs that occurred during this time which is unsurprising. The point of surrealism was to search the mind and the subconscious, so the fact that many psychological theories came from this cultural movement would make sense. What surrealism is most famous for is the art and writing that was produced from it. The key to surrealist art and writing was to take a part of reality that is believable and twist in a way that is very dreamlike. This could mean to take an ordinary situation and make it scary and uncomfortable, like a nightmare, or to make it odd and pleasant like some more regular dreams. Overall, it is a fascinating movement that many people still identify with to this day.
