Trotsky’s actions caused him to be arrested, and once again, exiled to Siberia (Leon Trotsky Biography par. 6). Even though important figures in the government did not join ranks with the Bolsheviks, many workers and soldiers began to support the Bolshevik party after the February Revolution when Vladimir Ilich Lenin protested for peace and insisted that Soviets, workers’ councils, should take authority and could improve the country.

“Men screams from the depths of his soul” . Theatre was not the only art that was applied in Expressionism; in fact visual art was used first when a French painter called Julien-Auguste Hervé started to use it to distinguish his work from impressionism in 1911. However, theatre took a more important role in Germany’s culture than the visual arts, because theatre was active. What distinguishes expressionism in theatre with any other arts is that it is alive; it gave the audience the chance to “read” the performance as a text about the contemporary state of the German Culture. This distinction is very important for the understanding of what the theatrical expressionism attempted to do in its use of the stage and
“Art for art’s sake” was also a popular idea being circulated. These ideas propelled the Art Nouveau movement and dramatically shifted the world’s view on art, design, and daily living (Gontar, 2008). How Design Response Relates to Force: In concordance with the inspiration of nature, wood floors were left in the open as a celebration of its material.

Craftivism Craftivism is the power of getting a significant message across regarding different issues like, environmental, social or political causes. Craftivism is practiced in a peaceful manner through activities such as crocheting hats for chemotherapy patients and the less fortune. Craftivism can be displayed in places such as parks, railings or anywhere a cable tie can be attached. The thought process behind these issues involved is important as it requests the use of one’s time and also ones very own hands. Craftivism, the term itself was established by Betsy Greer in 2003 (REFERENCE In LIST); who sometimes can be referred to as the godmother of Craftivism.
It first began in with the painting “Les Demoiselles d` Avignon” by Pablo Piccaso in 1907. The painting was portrayed in a way that many find unusual due to the non-conformant conception of beauty standards set by Renaissance painters. It is the first style of abstract art which emerged at the start of the twentieth century. Cubism in context is simply the denial of classical representation of one’s perception. The ignorance of proportion and perspective is one of the many singularities prominent in cubism art.
Deconstructivism is basically a development of postmodern architecture it is influenced by the theory of deconstruction, which a French philosopher Jacques Derrida developed a semiotic analysis. The main aim of this paper is to study how deconstructivist architects find unfamiliar solutions to problems. This paper based on research illustrates how deconstruction represents a complex response to a variety of theoretical and philosophical movement of the 20th century furthermore exploring more ways of designing, braking a boundary that have been guiding architects for a long time “FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION”.to re-examine architecture’s role in the spaces it contained, and to come up with new innovative ideas of creating new forms of structures.
In 1932, a new architectural style in the modern movement emerged to free the architectural form from any decorative element (Hitchcock and Johnson, 1966). It was influenced by the philosophy of Adolf Loos “Ornament and Crime”, where he describes ornaments and decorations as a crime since they are labour intensive (Encyclopedia of World Biography, 2004, para. 7), As well as “form follows function” by Frank Lloyd Wright (Runco, 1999, p. 82). Both philosophies advocated simplicity and functionality rather than creating decorations. Therefore, color has not been discussed enough although of its important role, since it was viewed as a choice for a decorative purpose.
