Max Ernst

On the occasion of the exhibition titled "Max Ernst: Beyond Painting" at the MoMA in New York, we feature the following video produced by the Telesur channel about Ernst's life as well as his artistic and philosophical influences through an analysis of the work titled Celebes created in 1921.
Celebes showcases the rejection, phobia, and criticism caused by the horror and traumatic experience of World War I. It conveys Ernst's subversive gaze through the exploration of the material and the construction of the dismembered character recreated with elements from war and old encyclopedias. A German-born French artist, Max Ernst was known for using a variety of techniques in his work, including collage and frottage. He is regarded as one of the most representative creators of the Dadaist and Surrealist artistic vanguards of the 1910s and 1920s, as well as one of the most resourceful artists of modernity.
