Dadaism (new) Dadaism (new) 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
  • Philo 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
