In 2014, the then newly-cast Doctor Who actor Peter Capaldi appeared on an episode of “Unlock Art”, a collaborative online project between Tate and Le Méridien Hotels and Resorts, to explain the concept of surrealism. Being a former art student himself, Capaldi quite capably offered a quiet, rather surreal tour inside the history of this particular style, which began in France during the early 1920s.
