Previews How To Be A Surrealist With Philippa Perry Premieres Tues 4 Apr on BBC-4 Published 2 years ago on April 4, 2017 One off documentary How To Be A Surrealist With Philippa Perry premieres on Tuesday 4 April at 9.00pm on BBC Four. Melting clocks and lobster telephones – the perplexing images of surrealist art are instantly recognisable to millions. But for psychotherapist Philippa Perry, the radical ideas which inspired the original artists are often overlooked. In this film, Philippa takes us on a playful journey into the unconscious, to discover the deep roots of Surrealism established in the political upheavals of 1920s Europe and the new ways of understanding the human psyche. Among her surrealist adventures, Philippa sets up her own Bureau of Surrealist Research on the streets of Paris and invites members of the public to tell her their dreams, she uncovers the role of women in the surrealism and puts on a screening of Dalí and Buñuel’s famous film Un Chien Andalou for a group of unsuspecting art students. Not content to stand on the side-lines, Philippa has a go at being an artist’s muse herself and rolls up her sleeves to try some Surrealist techniques with art critic Adrian Searle. How To Be A Surrealist With Philippa Perry airs on Tuesday 4 April 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on BBC Four.
