Artists and writers have always toyed with reality, but in the early 1920s, the popular philosophical and cultural movement, Surrealism (beyond-reality), emerged. Partly fueled by Freud's work on the subconscious, visual artists, poets, playwrights, composers, and filmmakers looked for ways to liberate the psyche and tap hidden reservoirs of creativity.

Surrealism artists find magic and strange beauty in the overlooked, unconventional, unexpected, and uncanny. Their work's core is the willingness to challenge imposed values and norms and a search for freedom.

Surrealism also embraces unconscious desires or things we don't know we want.

John Lennon once said, "Surrealism had a great effect on me because then I realized that the imagery in my mind wasn't insanity. Surrealism to me is reality".

Surrealist art often uses dream imagery to show the mind's inner workings. For example, have you ever dreamed that your teeth were falling out or that you were flying? Surrealists used images like this in their art to create instinctive meanings the viewer would not need rational thought to understand.
