The endeavor that the Bureau of Surrealist Research at 15 Rue de Grenelle “gather all the information possible related to forms that might express the unconscious activity of the mind.” What does that mean? Im not really sure, but i did not expect to. The purpose of the bureau was to “unite all those who are interested in expression where thought is freed from any intellectual preoccupations; . . . all those who are closely or remotely concerned with surrealism will find all the information and documentation relative to the Mouvement surréaliste.” It opened in 1924, days before the Surrealist Manifesto was published by Andre Breton. The Bureau was the center of surrealism. It was where they met and gained publicity for their movement.
