Duchamp's latex breast beckons visitors to the Barbican's "Surreal House" exhibition this summer. In fact, the sculpture -- originally brought to bear as the cover to the 1947 "Surrealism in 1947" show catalog -- serves as the doorbell for a haunted structure designed by London architect firm Carmody Groarke.

Once inside, fans of surrealism will be able to view works by Dalí, Bourgeois, Magritte and other giants of the movement as well as films by Buster Keaton, Luis Bunuel, Maya Deren and similar surrealist allies.
