Surrealism at Paris' Pompidou Centre

The Surrealist works of Dali and the like can seem like a living dream: Cyclops spectacles, household objects with ears and noses, a chair that’s impossible to sit on... These and more are on show at Paris’ Pompidou Centre until March 3rd at the exhibition "Surrealism And The Object". Our art critic Sean Rose tells us why this haphazard world vision isn't always that different from the conventional world around us.

Also on the show: in the week that Egypt voted on its proposed new constitution, we meet the young Egyptian artists who are re-writing their country’s cultural scene.

Also, we investigate the resurgence in filmmaking in Romania that they’re calling the Romanian New Wave.

Finally, we’re getting caught up in the buzz of the upcoming Muppets movie "Muppets Most Wanted" - and discovering its hilarious tongue-in-cheek promotional campaign.
