A new take on Christian Dotremont and his links with surrealism.

Within the context of the Occupation, they were forced to consider some existential issues. This turbulent but crucial period in the artist’s career and the history of surrealism can be retraced thanks to Dotremont’s archival collection, donated to the King Baudouin Foundation by his brother, Guy Dotremont.
