Man Ray, Fernand Leger & Marcel Duchamp, 1923 1929

Dada and Surrealism – two leading art movements in the first decades of the last century – radically revolutionized the way we think about art. Both opened up new opportunities for creative processes: Dadaism by reinterpreting everyday objects, focusing on the role of chance and questioning conventional aesthetic norms; Surrealism by proposing new ways of understanding reality and broadening the very concept of reality. New genres sprouted from Dada and Surrealism, such as the object (an everyday object given new meaning by the artist), photomontage, collage and assemblage (which both rearranged photos, images and other objects according to some unique new order), and ready-mades, which were simply “ready-made” items put to artistic use.
