CTS-20151015

At the second CTS class, we learned about DADA and Surrealism through essence theories and various artists who play an important role in each art movement. Questioning, discussing and playing the game is also our way of leaning, I feel great by leaning through this way lead by our course tutor at class.

I think Dada use a very extreme way to question about art. They definitely overthrow the whole art world, or maybe not only art world, but also overthrow the traditional aesthics in this world. They create chaos and find out a whole new WAY OF SEEING ART. Everything that been consciously given the meaning represent the ART, which leads the whole world to step up on a new standpoint of how we feel and know about the things that matter in our life.  Art is not only about beauty and pleasure. After Dada, art can go deep into the most preposeterous and the most contraversial part that fuilled with paradox of the world, which depict the diversity and madness of this world much better than before.
