-During the [[1980s]], behind the [[Iron Curtain]], Surrealism entered [[Polish]] politics with an underground artistic opposition movement known as the [[Orange Alternative]]. The Orange Alternative was created in 1981 by [[Waldemar Fydrych]] (alias 'Major'), a graduate of history and art history at the University of [[Wrocław]]. They used Surrealist symbolism and terminology in their large scale happenings organized in the major Polish cities during the [[Jaruzelski]] regime, and painted Surrealist graffiti on spots covering up anti-regime slogans. Major himself was the author of a "Manifesto of Socialist Surrealism". In this manifesto, he stated that the socialist (communist) system had become so Surrealistic that it could be seen as an expression of art itself.+
