The Art of War
Some say art has been around as long as the world itself. Much like the world, art has changed and evolved over the years - many of the changes reflect, or are a result of the current happenings in the world. For instance, the Dada (or Dadaism) movement was a period in which “non-art” developed in reaction to the events that took place during World War I, artists expressed nonsense, irrationality, and anti-bourgeois protest and opposed the traditional art form. Likewise, pop art was a movement in reaction to the abstract expressionism movement in an attempt to challenge the traditions of fine art by using imagery from popular/mass-produced culture.
