In the surrealist room of the permanent collection, 10 labels have been replaced by personal questions about art, its perception in time and its impact on world history. The rupture with the traditional explanatory approach points out the relativity of information.

Art as such is never isolated from political and social problems of society, but rather, a direct response to these issues. Actuality begins the moment we start seeing.
