Dadaism

Dadaism (descended from French dadaisme, dada – a wooden horse; figuratively – incoherent baby talk) is a modernist literary and artistic movement of 1916-1922, which is characterized by conscious irrationalism and demonstrative anti-aesthetism. It was born during the First World War in Zurich (Switzerland), as a reaction to the consequences of the war, the brutality of which, according to the Dadaists, emphasized the meaninglessness of existence. Rationalism and logic were declared one of the main culprits of devastating wars and conflicts. Based on this, the Dadaists believed that modern European culture should be destroyed through the decomposition of art. The most famous Dadaists: Hans Arp (1886-1966), Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), Max Ernst (1891-1976), Philip Supo (1897-1990), Tristan Tzara (1896-1963). Continue reading

Abstractionism

Abstractionism (from Latin abstraction– distraction, removal) is one of the directions in the art of the 20th century, the essence of which was the complete rejection of the depiction of real objects and phenomena in painting, drawing and sculpture. Abstractionism arose on the basis of such currents as cubism, futurism and expressionism. Some areas of abstractionism (Suprematism, neoplasticism) differed in ordered designs from lines, geometric shapes and volumes of various colors. And such a direction as tashism was rather a reflection of the spontaneity and unconsciousness of creativity in the dynamics of volumes and spots. Abstractionism sought to “harmonize”, the creation of certain color combinations and geometric shapes, so that the beholder formed certain associations. The date of abstractionism can be considered 1910, it was then that its founder V.V. Kandinsky presented the first abstract work in the history of art in Munich and wrote a treatise on the Spiritual in Art, where he substantiated his own creative methodology with scientific discoveries.
