Andre Breton, founder of Surrealism, was a medical student when he enlisted as a psychiatric nurse during the First World War. His theories led him to diagnose war as an illness, with Europe as the patient suffering a collective “nervous breakdown”.  Surrealism sought to channel, into works of art, the collectively repressed frustrations that had led to the devastation; the irrational juxtapositions and hallucinatory images created a movement unlike any other.
