Cornell notes

Dada

  • Dadaism is a cultural movement that began during World War I.

  • The movement concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the standards in art through anti-art cultural works.

  • Its purpose was to ridicule what some considered to be meaninglessness of the modern world. In addition to being anti-war, dada was also anti-bourgeois and anarchistic in nature.

  • Many Dadaists believed that the 'reason' and 'logic' of bourgeois capitalist society had led people into war. They expressed their rejection of that concept in artistic expression that appeared to reject logic and embrace chaos and irrationality.

  • Can you think of other wars that produced this kind of rebellion?


Surrealism

Surrealism

  • Surreal (Sur – more)

  • Can you think of situations that are “more than real”?

  • Dreams – serve as a portal to the subconscious

  • Surrealism developed out of the Dada activities of World War I.

  • From the 1920s onward, the movement spread around the globe, eventually affecting the visual arts, literature, film and music of many countries and languages, as well as political thought and practice, philosophy and social theory.

Characteristics of surrealism1

Characteristics of Surrealism

  • Writers began the Surrealist movement. A few years later artists began to paint in the style that was described. Surrealists wanted to free their minds of rational thought, to write or paint the ideas that were buried deep in their minds. These artists did not wish their work to make simple, logical sense.

  • Surrealists paintings were generally based on dreams. Their paintings were filled with familiar objects which were painted to look strange or mysterious. They hoped their odd paintings would make people look at things in a different way and change the way they felt about things. They thought that their paintings might stir up feelings in the back of peoples minds.

  • Surrealist art featured realistic objects and forms juxtaposed in an unrealistic or impossible way. The Surrealist movement—which also included surrealist books, plays, poems, music, and movies, as well as visual art—sought to capture dreamlike images, and create a new kind of reality that was more creative, meaningful, and exciting than the real world.

  • Ants/Flies: Decay

  • Crutch: Comfort in old age

  • Keys: Unlocking the mind or hidden or secret ideas

  • Grasshoppers: Terror and horror (he was terrified of them)

  • Egg: Birth

  • Bread: Staple of life
