Time Out says

The Picasso Museum has acquired 'Jamais', the gramophone by Óscar Domínguez that caused a sensation at the Exposition Internationale du Surréalisme in Paris in 1938. After finding a record of it in a book by critic Eduardo Westerdahl and in a photograph by Nick de Morgoli that showed the piece in Picasso's workshop, the museum has managed to track it down. 'Jamais' has been restored – it's got its original engine which once again rotates – and is surrounded by documents that show the relevance the Pathé gramophone had as it was transformed into an erotic and hypnotic object.
