Luis Bunuel: Aesthetics of the Irrational
This exhibition presents a retrospective of the Spanish surrealist film maker Luis Bunuel. It spans his career from his first film
Un Chien Andalou (1929) to The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1970).
Bunuel was part of the Spanish avant garde along with artist Salvador Dali and poet Federico Garcia Lorca.
This always stayed with him, but he moved leftwards.While his work wasn’t always succesful, it poked fun at capitalist norms.
As he once said, he made movies “to show that this is not the best of all possible worlds”.
