Who wants to talk about art movements including contemporary movements?

Dada is my fave movement at the moment.
The "anything is art" people where they disliked all that art had to offer and effectively joined the moment to destroy it from within.
Started by Hugo Ball and Emmy Hennings at the Cabaret Voltaire in Switzerland, Ball having escaped war needed money for him and wife so they could eat, so he went to a bar and started the cabaret Voltaire which drew on philosophical concepts put in place by Voltaire the french philosopher.
The Cabaret Voltaire was a Cabaret where artists mostly displaced by war would conjugate and perform their art and talk about art, one of the more prominent members of the Cabaret Voltaire, besides Ball and Hennings was Tristan Tzara who made poems out of scrap words. He outlined how to make a dadaist poem by getting a newspaper article, cutting out all the words and sticking them together how they came out.

Dada had four different locations initially, Zurich, Berlin, Paris and New York.

Other Dadaists included Max Ernst who was a well known surrealist painter and Marcel Duchamp who has now rised to infamy with his artwork "fountain" which was a urinal placed on its side and signed "r. mutt 1917".
Although Duchamp is currently seen as being a member of Dada he operated mostly on his own and was considered dada after dada finished up, he operated mostly on his own after being denied entry into the ranks of the cubists in paris, before he left for new york.

Dada is now considered to be the foundations for the modern contemporary art even though Dadas goal was to destroy and bring down the art work, in an effort to take away one of the pleasures from the bourgeoisie, it only bolstered it and gave art a new direction which is what most contemporary art is still playing around with, the question of "what is art?"

Art class was twice a week. I do not remember it because it was captivating, but because it was drilled into me.

Also, yes, she was the best teacher I ever had. This intro is more of an anecdote, but much of what she taught us during those 4 years stayed with us until now (17 yrs since I graduated from high school). She lived for, and knew how, to make kids think and remember (not learn, mind you, but think and remember).

>So basically the only thing you care about is how this affects you?
Why yes. Ask me the same question about a million more things, the answer will be the same. Something must affect me in some, direct or indirect way, in order for me to care about it.

oooh! what picasso did you get? For all the fame picasso has i cant name any of his paintings off the top of my head, i know what some of them look like but their titles escape me.
Its weird because i could give you atleast 10 braque paintings off the top of my head, but no picasso... i know there is one where its a girl in front of a mirror which is quite popular the one with the lady sitting on the chair and the one with the guitarist. But their titles are just not coming to me. probably in french or something lol.

I would probably have one of his prints hanging on my wall if i wasnt opposed to hanging other artists works on my wall.

yeah she sounds really cool.

>Something must affect me in some, direct or indirect way, in order for me to care about it.
Thats fair enough i suppose.
Drilled into you, captivated, same thing if you ask me! :p

So do you look upon that work fondly or is it an insult?

Duchamp may have stolen the fountain work from a woman. I'll post the article if i can find it. I'm not sure if that makes the work better or not, probably not if you are a feminist....

yeah absolutely from the Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven.
She was using pipes and plumbing in her work for years before duchamp ever presented fountain.

I mean its signed r mutt which was a pseudonym so i'm not sure if duchamp claiming the work is totally the baroness' work which would make it malicious or the work was co created with duchamp or him claiming the artwork as his own was part of the dada aesthetic, which i sincearly doubt since duchamp is mostly thought of as a dada artist post dada.

When duchamp spoke about fountain there is no indication ever implied that the artwork is not his own, so im quite convinced that the artwork was co created with the baroness, even if he commisioned the baroness, who was using pipes to make artwork at the time, to make the work for him it would still be part of his work.

I think the biggest factor in this, is that the baroness in 1915 did an artwork called "god" which is basically just a pipe (i think ubend? i dont know plumbing) which at the time was credited to Francis Picabia. But that work has now come to be known to be co-created by the baroness, so we assume but are not entirely sure that the baroness co created fountain with duchamp. its still up in the air and since they are both dead and im sure their journals etc have been sifted through already, we may never know.

So yeah it is assumed that she had significant involvement in the making fountain, based off of her previous works with plumbing.

>I honestly found his editing a little tired by the end, i feel that some of the shots couldve been shortened a little bit but i say that sitting at a computer desk accessing the internet, where videos are always fast paced and jump cuts etc.

I take this back. theres nothing wrong with his editing, his editing is amazing and very good.

I mostly wrote about the editing focusing on the rl video, but even then, just going back and watching it once again, is good.

so i rescind that comment.

By the obvious influences thing, I mean it's clear he browses 4chin a lot.

The subject, the music, the style, all very 4chinny.

And that's fine. But it's not original in a way. You never want a few influences to define your work.

But that's the best way I can describe it, an offspring of the mind of an image-board browser channeling the same ol.

He does have potential, just needs to see more of the world or something to get some more influences.

Actually, after viewing some of his other work, he does have his own thing going on.

I guess it was just this video that gave me that impression. The use of OPN, the vapor-wavy style, combined with the subject matter just mades me groan at this point because that style has become oversaturated. Almost like a formula at this point.

Still enjoying them. You should put a watermark on them. Then people can track it's original source if someone decides to post your work on a chan or w/e.

Starting with C, the 12 notes each are colors. C is Red, and C up one octave is still red. The notes in between make up a rainbow that comes full circle. Find a way to express rhythm and time visually. Draw music and I will post the sound of it.
