Dalí, Ernst, Miró, Magritte at Hamburger Kunsthalle

With the major exhibition Dalí, Ernst, Miró, Magritte… the Hamburger Kunsthalle is presenting more than 150 masterpieces of Surrealism (some have never travelled) from four of the most renowned European private collections of the 20th century. Surrealism, the most influential art movement of the 20th century, thus can be experienced in an unprecedented scope

At the same time, the exhibition, providing insight into the development and quality of four of the most legendary 20th century collections of Surrealism, brings forth a new focus in research: In »surreal encounters« between the works, artists and collectors, the show explores the differences and similarities in collecting behaviour and developments of the art market over a period of 50 years. It allows us to comprehend how and why the collector integrated surrealist thinking into his home, and for the first time illustrates the complex relations of collectors, supporters and artists with regard to Surrealism.

The exhibition project of the Hamburger Kunsthalle was developed in a first-time tri-national cooperation with the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. A large number of further international loans from significant European and American museums and private collections allow for this exiting dialogue.

INTERVIEW: EMAN BARAKAT

Interviews | October 7, 2020

"I prefer to work with natural, familiar material such as stone and metal to create my own work, and I depends on create forms using details abstract and simple to focus on the beauty of shape, I chose animals shape and abstract it, cause it have more vitality and ability to make different movement, and trying to make a dialogue between shapes in some work, but now I am trying to focus on the idea of beginning and how to find away from it till you find your own way (when I look at my work and checked it I feel like it’s all talking about the beginning when everything started – all we trying to do will be better if we found our real start).
