The Barbican is currently running 'The Surreal House,' an art and photography exhibition. Jane Alison, senior curator at The Barbican, said that this is "the first time an exhibition has really probed the relationship between surrealism and architecture."

'The Surreal House' is a comprehensive collection of some of the most gripping surrealist art that has ever been made, but sticking with the theme of domesticity and the house.

Implications - Consumers are drawn to surrealistic imagery as it provides them an escapist experience. As this type of experience is always in high demand regardless of economic and social climates, corporations may find it beneficial to provide consumers with products and services which satiate the public's need to divert themselves from their realities.
