Salvador Dalí Recorded A Home Movie In 1954 And It’s As Surreal As It Sounds

If Salvador Dalí were alive today, he’d probably appreciate the brisk format of TikTok. Cuts, weird props, and unexpected twists would have been part of his brand. The closest the Surrealist painter got to creating these short clips came in the form of a home movie he’d made on the terrace of his villa in Port Lilgat, Costa Brava, Spain. Thanks to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the world gets to enjoy it too.

When Salvador Dali Viewed Joseph Cornell’s Surrealist Film, Became Enraged & Shouted: “He Stole It from My Subconscious!” (1936)

Did Salvador Dalí meet the diagnostic criteria for a personality disorder and maybe, also, a form of psychosis, as some have alleged? Maybe, but there’s no real way to know. “You can’t diagnose psychiatric illnesses without doing a face to face psychiatric examination,” Dutch psychiatrist Walter van den Broek writes, and it’s possible Dali “consciously created an ‘artistic’ personality… for the money or in order to succeed.” No doubt Dalí was a tireless self-promoter who marketed his work by way of a sensationalist persona.
