Impactful across the globe, both Dada and Surrealism were artistic movements created in the early 20th century that were significant in redefining modern art today. The Dada movement came about in 1916 through the performance of Hugo Ball’s sound poem “Karawane” at the Cabaret Voltaire that he opened with his partner, nightclub singer Emmy Hennings, in Zurich, Switzerland. The poem made absolutely no sense, purposely, and it didn’t have to. Ball would also dress in wild costumes for his performances as seen below:
Cathrin Klingsöhr-Leroy's Surrealism introduces us to dozens of creative visual artists who transformed the art world (and the world at large) with their mesmerizing paintings and sculptures. Along the way Klingsöhr-Leroy treats us to a veritable mini-history of Surrealism with a critical introduction that situates the movement with regard to Art History and History in general. Using Klingsöhr-Leroy's writings as my point of departure, I will, in these pages, seek to draw a connection between the work of the surrealists and the writing of Junichiro Tanizaki in The Key. One of Klingsöhr-Leroy's key theses is that surrealist artists sought to incorporate Sigmund Freud's theories on their splendid canvases; similarly, Tanizaki can be seen to reveal
The unconventional nature of surrealists can be traced back to this idea, and created a dividing line between some, as artists were accused of creating art to consciously. Max Ernst’s creation of the frottage, or rubbing quickly became popular with the surrealists because of how the unpredictability of it provoked the imagination. Unfortunately, others expanding on the same ideas of consciousness, were not as harmless as Ernst’s frottage, and used the idea of unpredictability as an excuse to avoid accountability.

He was in the Treehouse Coffee ‘N’ Cake Shoppe, which belonged to King Adolf, the German King. Fritz was sipping his cappuccino with Elsese, the German Princess.

It was pendragon, and he was looking more fearsome than ever. His arms and legs were jacked.

If the world was made up of the same person, thinking the same as every other person, it would be a very boring world we would live in. Our personality is what make up our identity. If you were an old grumpy man, people would start to identify you based off your dull personality. They might would start to call him “that grump old man”. For you to be who you are today, can be based off lots of different factors. Our genetics’ and our environment are the main influence in who we are and why we are. The theorist that I feel compliments my personality the most, and what I believe would be Erik Erikson.
Edward Jenner, born in 1749, was a doctor and also the pioneer of the vaccination for smallpox. In 1796 his famous experiment was carried out, when a milkmaid approached Jenner and enquired about a rash on her hand. He then diagnosed the milkmaid with cowpox and not smallpox. Jenner took this opportunity to test properties of cowpox on an individual who had not yet encountered either disease. He inserted pus taken from a cowpox pustule from the milkmaid into an open cut that was on James Phipps arm. After a few days, James Phipps had become ill with cowpox, but recovered several days after. Due to this is Jenner knew that not only could cowpox be passed from cow to person, but also from person to person. His theory was being tested that milkmaids who had suffered

Max Ernst was an artist who experimented outside of the comfort zone when expressing his artistic abilities in his working years, from 1891 to 1976. His work reflects his involvement in, first dada, then surrealism, and his preferred medium, oil on canvas. Ernst once said "Painting is not for me either decorative amusement, or the plastic invention of felt reality; it must be every time: invention, discovery, revelation.”i Ernest lived during a time of political, economic and social upheaved in Europe. He became a soldier in WWI, and this experience had a deep impact on his future work. He was mostly concerned with the modern world being irrational. These issues he experienced in-person, made him believe the world was not the way it should
A cultural movement that emerged in the early 1920’s, Surrealism started as a literal movement but evolved into something much more. Best known for it’s dreamlike scenes of irrational and often surprising substance, the movement spoke to the unconscious mind of humankind with the semiotic balance between reality and fiction. Artists of this era turned and merged everyday objects into contradictory and irrational works of art, giving rise to new forms of thought and creation (Mikos, 2013). Andre Breton, the founder of surrealism was inspired by Sigmund Freud’s view of the unconscious mind and how this information could shape society. Salvador Dali, a surrealist artist, challenged the conventional mind, and set an example to as the ever changing reality; as seen through his abstract perception of nature and time. Post WW1, where society was evidently changing; Breton became the founder of the surrealist movement, while Dali was a pioneer in the abstract styles of surrealism. Culturally, this movement directly impacted individuals identity, ritualistic beliefs, status and the way in which art was performed and presented. Many still question why this is relevant today, as this form and movement was a pinnacle turning point for art as we know it today; creating and changing the ‘norm’ to something farfetched but still seemingly realistic and possible.
