|German term or phrase: die Moderne|
|Die Sammlung des XXX Museums setzt mit der ...... ein und beinhaltet die wichtigsten Stationen und Positionen der Moderne.|
Should I call this modern art? Contemporary art? No no, that's not the same. Is there a term I don't know of? What does an art collector say when he adresses "die Moderne"?
Tnx in advance!
A term used widely but imprecisely to refer to all the "progressive" movements in 19th - 20th c art. What is agreed is that towards the end of 19th-c number of artists, including Cezanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, Ensor and Munch challenged in various ways the traditional approach to painting based on such notions as naturalistic figure-drawing and Renaissance perspective. Their innovations inspired the younger generation around 1904-05 (in Paris Rouault, Matisse, Picasso, in Dresden Kircher, Heckel). Picasso and Braque developed Cubism (1906-08) the most widely influential of all modern movements.
The Blaue Reiter group in Munich pushed further away from imitation (1912-14) and a purely abstract art soon emerged in the hands of Kandinsky and Klee. In MOscow in 1917 Malevich developed a totally abstract art which he called "suprematism". By 1916 a nihilist reaction knowen as "Dadaism" was already emerging in Zurich; it attacked all artistic values, but itself contributed to the ideas of the early Surrrealists who launched their first manifesto in Paris in 1924.
Hope this helps!
