  2. 2. ART AND THE AVANT-GARDE
  3. 3. CUBISM • Emphasis of ideas and concepts, instead of reality. • Concepts were represented by collections of shapes and objects. • Figures were represented with simple geometric shapes, such as cubes, cylinders or spheres. Las señoritas de Avignon, by Picasso
  4. 4. EXPRESSIONISM • Emphasis in the depiction of emotions (such as disappointment, or suffering during the war). • Simple but dramatic techniques. • Powerful colours. • Dynamic images. • Emotion showed through deformed faces, hands or other parts of the body. • The shapes of human beings were reduced to very basic silhouettes. The scream, by Edward Munch About min. 17
  5. 5. DADAISM • Movement inspired by people´s experiences of the WWI, and especially the disillusioment with society that artists felt as a result of the war. • Dadaist wanted to provoke people by rebelling against established models of artistic expressions. • The scandalous Duchamp´s work was a porcelain urinal, which was signed "R.Mutt" and titled Fountain. It´s considered a major landmark in 20th-century art. Fountain, by Marcel Duchamp, 1917.
