Presentation Transcript

  1. Critical Action

  2. Criticism • The act of evaluating and judging • Provides the possibility of improvement • Different types of criticism depend on the field of study and the audience

  3. Avant Garde Art • Developed in France in late 19th century • Started in the theater as a form of cabaret • Expanded to incorporate all forms of expression • Can loosely be defined as being “anti”

  4. Attacking Modernism • Avant garde critiques the institution of art • Seeks new forms outside of tradition • Attempts to provoke the viewer

  5. Appropriation • After WWII the historical Avant Garde (Futurism, Dada, Surrealism) became popular • Once against the institution, it was now becoming institutionalized • Culture appropriates itself continually

  6. A Brief History of Punk • "punk rock had to come along because the rock scene had become so tame that [acts] like Billy Joel and Simon were being called rock and roll, when to me and other fans, rock and roll meant this wild and rebellious music". Malcolm McClaren • The Stooges - 1970 • Sex Pistols – 1979 • Mountain Dew - 1996
