This paper will address the key factors regarding surrealism by explaining its most popular methods, its goals, the historical events and founders and lastly, its impact on art and other areas. Surrealism was rooted from Dada, which is a result of World War I. Dada artists’ goals are to create a culture where people champion the absurd, the irrational and the spontaneous to relief themselves from the boundaries and anger created by the war. Surrealists, however, having realized the “cynical and nihilistic” results of Dada’s works, used the ideas from Dada to create a “more sophisticated, more comprehensive movement” (Brad Finger, 2013, p 12).

The influence of propaganda on the development of art in the 20th century Europe of the 20th century underwent a number of important social, political and economical changes. In an age marked by the rise of nationalism and the two World Wars, by overwhelming scientifical and technological innovation, the arts were facing many challenges caused by the tensions and unrest characteristic for this period of time. With ideologies such as Communism in Russia, Fascism in Italy and Hitler 's Nazism in Germany spreading rapidly through Europe, their propaganda reached the world of art, having a great impact on both the artist and the artwork. This article takes a closer look at the relationship between propaganda and art in the context of a war dominated society, disclosing the diverse façades of ideological influence on the world of arts. Understanding the historical context is a vital condition for a deeper comprehension of the development of arts, when it is so closely tied to the social, political and economical factors.

Hi ideas were expressed through his book called ‘The Visible Woman’ (1930).

“Requiem for the American Dream,” a documentary arranged by Peter D. Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott, features an MIT professor of linguistics, Noam Chomsky, who narrates the film on the topic of inequality, democratization, solidarity, and unjust systems of today’s economy. Noam Chomsky intends to convince American citizens that the economy and democratic systems have negatively changed over the 20th century and into the 21st century. Additionally, Chomsky emphasizes that a shift in the economy from manufacturing to financial institutions is the result of the concentration of wealth and the Republican agenda for reformation. Due to the changes in the economy and the unjust vicious cycle, Chomsky is passionate and persistent in informing American citizens of the problematic economic shifts, spurring from the ideologies of recent presidents. Furthermore, Chomsky informs the public about how these illusory changes, implemented by the government, are negatively impacting the unaware lower class.
Hecksher-Ohlin theory, which appeared in the 30s of the twentieth century, belongs to the neo-classical concepts of international trade. The main provisions of their theories are summarized as follows: firstly, there is a tendency in the countries those goods export for which the factors of production are excess, and to import such goods for manufacturing of which are required the relatively rare factors; secondly, in the international trade there is a trend of leveling of the "factor prices"; and thirdly, the export of goods may be replaced by the movement of factors of production across national boundaries. The neoclassical concept of the Heckscher-Ohlin model is convenient to explain the reasons for the development of trade between developed and developing countries, where in exchange for raw materials, which are exported in developed countries, in developing countries machinery and equipment are imported. However, not all effects of international trade are stacked in the theory of Heckscher-Ohlin, because today the center of gravity of international trade is gradually shifting to the mutual trade of "similar" goods between "similar" countries (Zhang). International trade affects the macroeconomic equilibrium of the national economy.
The earlier period of modern art saw the development of various schools, including impressionism, realism, academic art, romanticism, and symbolism. 1916 the Dada movement was launched with a strong desire to subvert the value system that has led to the Verdun and the Somme. The expressive use of colour was also first exploited in a major way. This period is in some ways summed up by the idea of progress always being a positive development and as a result a feeling of optimism. The idea of knowledge of the true self as the only foundation of all other knowledge prevaded.
