I'm a philosophy student that tends to post about really serious things unseriously and about really unserious things seriously.
I was once described as a "beautiful, intelligent iguana".
YOU REALIZE DALI WAS A FASCIST FUCK WHO FULLY SUPPORTED FRACO’S MURDEROUS DICTATORSHIP AND SYMPATHIZED WITH HITLER’S ANTI-SEMITIC AND RACIST VIEWS AND ALSO SUPPORTED MUSSOLINI RIGHT YOU KNOW THAT RIGHT YOU CAN GOOGLE SHIT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT
I just think his work was kind of shitty compared to a lot of the other surrealists I’ve seen.
But, like, I do feel his artwork can be separated from his politics. Like, no one should support his politics, right? But that’s obvious. I really think artworks have some sort of autonomous dimension to them (not fully autonomous, mind you, just partially), and that his work can be appreciated sans his politics.
But really, there are better surrealists, I’ve come to learn.
