- The Elephant Celebes (1921) by Max Ernst

Ernst: 'How to overcome the disgust and fatal boredom that military life and the horrors of war create? Howl? Blaspheme? Vomit?'

In 1920 Ernst organized one of the Dada movement's most famous exhibitions in the conservatory of a restaurant in Cologne. Visitors entered through the lavatories and axes were provided so they could smash the exhibits if they felt so inclined.


'On one occasion [Max Ernst's father] omitted a tree from one of his landscapes. This was an embarrassment, and he went back to the forest to saw down the tree in question.'
- Wayne Andrews; The Surrealist Parade
