The Salvador Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres is an extraordinary place – as Dalí himself fully intended it to be. It was founded in the ruins of the old Teatr Principal of his native town, Figueres in Catalonia. As its name suggests, it’s both a gallery displaying the works of art Dalí created over the course of his highly productive career and a place where his inexhaustible inventiveness continues to generate events and surprises even after his death. From its outer walls, crenellated with giant eggs and sprinkled with bread rolls, it’s an immensely enjoyable place to visit.
Whether in war-torn Ukraine, Laos or Spain, a lot can be learnt from the art created by kids living in war-torn regions across place and time.
