Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position to manipulate human emotions by displaying facts selectively.


Graffitiwas used as a form of expression by political activists.

Ready-mades = completely unaltered everyday objects used as “art”

The term found art describes art created from undisguised, but often modified, objects that are not normally considered art, often because they already have a non-art function.


6 Surrealistic Techniques

Scale: changing an object’s scale or size

Levitation: floating objects that don’t normally float

Juxtaposition: joining 2 images together in impossible combos

Dislocation: taking an object from its usual environment &

placing in an unfamiliar one.

Transparency: making objects transparent that are not usually


Transformation: changing objects in an unusual way.

The Futurists were also fascinated with movement & the capturing of speed or movements in art.

Futurist Architecture is characterized by long dynamic lines, suggesting speed, motion, urgency.

Many Italian Futurists supported Fascism (a form of radical authoritarian nationalism) in the hope of modernizing a divided country
