    In Breton wrote "It was in the black mirror of anarchism that surrealism first recognised itself. If one is poor in spirit, one possesses a sure and indomitable intelligence, a savage logic, a point of view that can not be shaken. Intelligence is an organization like any other, the organization of society, the organization of a bank, the organization of chit-chat. Mexico is the most surrealist country in the world".

    So, too, for the Surrealists. One result of this was a hatred, among certain artists, of all forms of authority, all traditional modes. The mundane, mostly mass-produced objects found new resonances when arranged in unprecedented and provocative configurations.

Most Surrealists took part in Dada meetings and the first text published Les Champs Magnetiques was not classified as surrealist at first but much later on it was.
