While he dictated, the culture of Germany was changed. Hitler wanted to make the population all think and be one certain way. To make this happen he made, “ Musical performances, movies, and other cultural public activities...all meant to make German’s brains exactly like the Nazi, eliminating any other thought of anti-government”(1). By controlling what people watched and read, Hitler brainwashed Germans to think positively of him and the Nazi’s. The population was not able to freely read or watch any sort of literature or other arts.
Looking at the installation, my eyes are immediately drawn to crime scene in the middle of this apartment and after I start to analyze the objects around the dead body. Osorio overwhelms the viewer with found objects meticulously placed all over to create a narrative. A person’s body lies underneath a bloodstained sheet with what appears to be broken china all over the floor. One can assume a violent act took place but Osorio leaves it to the viewer to put the puzzle pieces together. Osorio through this installation criticizes how society views his culture and which tries to disrupt the stereotypes present in the people viewing the artwork.
These kind of images make war seem as if it is a game; whoever wins gets the prizes of money, land, and status. Although this image makes war look very heroic, after World War I paintings began to portray war as a horrific setting. One particular painting is Eric Kennington’s Gassed and Wounded. In this image, he accentuates the men that are injured by contrasting their faces against the background.
While living with two young children in a town adjacent within distance from the city, they seemed perfectly fine with their life as if they are close to living perfectly, but the ugly truth is that it only appears to other people’s perspective. They are actually living with a very sad life which was emphasized by the proper music background and scenes. They are living their boring life at 115 Revolutionary Road-
Hi Bridgett, This painting is so on-point. There were many writers, artists, thinkers, and playwrights who fought in WWI. Their experiences were reflected in their works. Many of the show the horrors of war, disillusionment, man 's inhumanities to man, and the grotesqueness of their experiences. In many ways these paintings look like exaggerations but in a lot of ways, they were the realities of modern warfare: poison gas, machine guns, and advanced technologies.
Children of Holocaust survivors came to different group’s of artists who did not experience Holocaust people but are deeply affected by it. Some children of survivors used their paintings to put themselves in their parents shoes and consider how they would have reacted to life and Jewish people in the camps. Some German artists began using their art to deal with and heal their country 's painful past. Common motifs, or roots, run all categories of Holocaust art. The photographs taken by the liberators see up close and personal, the stacks of corpses lying around the camps were starving.
An initial reaction to this artwork is a feeling of mourn with an explosion of emotions. At first, the artwork serves as a symbol of sorrow, despair, and melancholy. The title of the work adds a dry, bland sense to the meaning behind the drawing. Through observing the drawing more strenuously, the work becomes more of a symbol of war and a cry for help. The despair and troublesome times that the working class went through during war is characterized in this artwork.
At the beginning of the film it shows how Germany is a prideful country because they held a parade as a celebration for their soldiers that were going out to fight for their country. In the scene All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) it displayed the feelings and combat experiences through out the whole film but mainly of those students that were encouraged by their professor to join the army and go fight in the World War 1. A few of those students that soon became soldiers were very scared of the thought of going to war, but it is clearly shown that they felt peer pressured by their friends and classmates. Many were excited to go fight for their country, although many did face a lot of bad experiences and most of them did not make it through the whole war due to infections and getting killed during combat.
The Surrealist movement first appeared in the early 1920s, and has shaped the course of art history significantly. The goal that many Surrealists share is to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality.” In other words, the purpose of Surrealism is to portray the imagination by revealing ideas and images from the unconscious mind. The movement occurred just after World War One, when many people were still coping with the grief and devastation that the war had brought. Many European countries were severely affected by the war as many economies were suffering a Depression. During this time, the Surrealists focused their energy on escaping from the devastation that surrounded
War is the biggest cause of destruction for nations. World War I in 1914 to 1918 and World War two from 1939 to 1945 shook the stability of countries and involved military alliances between different groups of countries. Germany was one of the countries affected by those wars. In 1934, 20 years after World War 1, The Triumph of The Will a documentary film was released. It was produced and created by Leni Riefenstahl, who was commissioned to do it by the Nazi Party.
Otto Dix’s The War Otto Dix, a German expressionist painter started his art career at young age, while he was in elementary school. He became an apprentice to a teacher and studied art, later to move on to the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts as a young adult. Later on he volunteered to join the German military, and was eager when he found out he was going to become a machine gunner. The war was not how he thought it would be though, as he was traumatized by the scenes of the war and came back as a different person. His painting styles grew to a darker and more sinister outlook on life with a main focus on war that gave a deathly feeling.
The epic solemnity of the story is replenished with a true-to-life effect of animal movements. To achieve this, animators studied the movements of real animals in order to create a “plausible” screen version. African landscape is “alive” with bright colours, which attract the human eye. The first scene informs us what the whole movie is going to be like.
