(Galerie NeuPortikus)

Photoshop makes surrealism quaint, Magritte's entire practice premised on its most basic tools, transpose, cut, drag and drop; and today phone apps like magic mirrors to show you elderly, replace your face with your dog, barf rainbows at will in a world that is totally virtual.The image today is understood as a total malleability. Euler's images free themselves of the physical setting - the last vestige of the pre-virtual surrealist - floating free in hyperlink space in which images are links, expanding out ready outpour their content in a deluge to anyone ready to open them.
