The building, Teatre-Museu Dali, and its fabulous contents provide a multidimensional experience for all the senses. While reliving, through imagination and present-time experiencing, Dali's cultural heritage, we will explore how artistic and creative intelligence uses art as an expression of psychological archetypes as well as a commentary on the social and political present.
