A new take on Christian Dotremont and his links with surrealism. Before founding the Cobra movement and inventing his famous ‘logograms’ (or word pictures), Dotremont began his creative career as a young poet alongside the surrealists. 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.

This precious document for our shared heritage was acquired by the King Baudouin Foundation.
