Many perceive what is happening in the present – with us, in our society, with the planet –as bizarre and surreal. And as a result, some of us appear to be gradually losing our faith in human reason. What we consider a phenomenon of our time is something one group of artists already experienced around a century ago, and which they made their calling card: Surrealism.

The SCHIRN SHORTCUTS are a new moving-picture format for art education. The concept of the Shortcuts starts out with the question as to where artistic phenomena or styles come from and how they develop. The implementation takes place via a sophisticated form of visual storytelling. The main focus of the narrative format lies on the derivation of the context or the subject of an exhibition, be it historical, aesthetic, social or related to the material concerned.
