büro desurrealismus is a story, a question, a myth, a destabilized spectacle, a line drawn in the sand, a revolving ballerina in a box, a dance of eros flung across a depletion of American dreams that spread across the world, a politics in question to corrosion, a march of golden trumpets,

a drowning of Disneyland happy afters, a refusal to the pornographic Young Girl, artists gathering on uneven grounds and walking down planks of gray, a flooding of tear drops, a full glass of wine, a hand holding, a note sung of

joy, a sharing, an intimacy of differences, a healing, a reflection, a honest despair to the derelict in a disheveled and decaying world, a spirit, a revolt of revolving and open doors, a secret, a lineage of

consciousness, a saying no, an evolution, a rewriting, a reliving, a reading, a listening, and, at its base, a living and question of what that means today for the human and rising dehumanizing conditions worldwide and the role of the ar

tist inside such a difficult, and privileged?, of situations.  


the büro operates as a meeting ground for friendships and respect for solitude to think, experiment, play, explore, experience in presence and poetics

to address what it means to be in this world with mingling intimacy and question of what does the spectacled and commodified image of surrealism, perhaps just a surrealist shell,  

mean in our times and what ever could subversion look like in our present state. how can the artist respond to the times and the world and to the integrity of themselves in both life and work?

the büro desurrealismus, in homage and question to the past lineage and centralized office of the Bureau de recherches surrealistes in 1924, will open its door for a window of two hours

 Monday through Saturday, although the hours

will be unannounced and operate on a strict schedule of spontaneous chance with always a mailbox if openings are missed and physical remnants

are wished to be collected, dropped, shared.

 In addition, the büro desurrealimus will hold weekly film screenings and discussions that will dissect a widening history of surrealist tenets, films addressing the possibilities and failures of revolutions and works that have

predicted, shaped or critically responded to our contemporary conditions in the world. The büro stands not in the sake of a movement, but more in the sense of an open, honest and spiritual reflection to times

 of chaos not in the sake of nostalgia for a past but rather as a contemporary prompt to inquire where a question of revolution and the arts can situate itself and what forms of past patriarchal foundations,

imposed status-quo technologies and enlarged bureaucratic structures has prohibited or enabled the existence of life in a non-hegemonic and surreal-spirited of forms.
