Dadaism Dadaism Presentation Transcript

  • DADAISM Revision
  • Beginnings
    • It is a post World War I cultural movement
    • It appeared in:
          • Visual arts
          • Literature (mainly poetry)
          • Theatre
          • Graphic design
  • Beginnings
    • It was a protest against the barbarism of the War
    • Dadaists believed War was an oppressive intellectual rigidity in both:
      • Art
      • Everyday society
  • Beginnings
    • Dadaist works are characterized by:
      • Deliberate irrationality
      • Rejection of the prevailing standards of art
    • It influenced on later movements including Surrealism
  • Philosophy
    • According to its proponents, Dadaá was not art
    • It was anti-Art
    • For everything that art stood for, Dadáaá was to represent the opposite
  • Philosophy
    • Dadaá supposed that
      • Where art was concerned with aesthetics, Dadaá ignored them
      • If art is to have at least an implicit or latent message, Dada strives to have no meaning
    • If art is to appeal to sensibilities, Dadaá offends
  • Influence
    • Interpretation of Dadaá is dependent entirely on the viewer.
    • This movement was highly influential in Modern Art.
    • It became a commentary on art and the world, thus becoming art itself.
  • Artists
    • They had become disillusioned by Art, Art History and History in general.
    • Many of them were veterans of World War I
    • They had grown cynical of humanity after seeing what men were capable of doing to each other on the battlefields of Europe.
  • Artists
    • Members of the movement were:
      • Hans Arp
      • Marcel Duchamp
      • picabia
      • Marx Ernst
      • Man Ray
      • Kurt Schwitters
  • Ideas
    • They became attracted to a nihilistic view of the world
    • They thought that nothing mankind had achieved was worthwhile, not even Art.
    • They created an Art in which chance and randomness formed the basis of creation
  • Ideas
    • The basis of Dadáa is nonsense.
    • With the order of the world destroyed by World War I, Dadáa was a way to express the confusion that was felt by many people as their own world was turned upside down.
  • Works
    • They took normal objects but they put them in such a way that were completely useless.
    • These objects received the name of `ready made´.
    • In paintings they tend to glue objects to the images, making of everything a kind of machine, something mechanic, no human
