Surrealism (founded by the French poet André Breton) came out of a merger of Dada with psychoanalysis. This video tells the story of an actual meeting between Sigmund Freud and the Spanish Surrealist artist Salvador Dali. It also provides an amusing account of a little-known visiting lecture by Dali in 1952 to the University of Northern Iowa, known then as Iowa State Teachers College, in Cedar Falls. It is based on contemporaneous news accounts and first-hand eyewitness reports. Written, produced and narrated by Roy R. Behrens (©2022).
