Crash Course Challenge day 4

I read some of the Modernism section in isms today which I took notes on and plan to finish tomorrow.

So far it’s pretty cool, the 20th century was like it’s own little rebirth of art and brought more challenging thoughts and ideas that continued to push the boundaries and introduced new techniques.  It’s almost like, art in the 19th and 20th centuries really started to become what the artists envisioned, like a child on the brink of adulthood. After years of being told what to do (in so many words) by the church/state/bourgeois, the artists realized that they had their own vision, and started asserting themselves in their art (and some people wanted to be part of the agendas and others didn’t) and in doing so, created more room and more freedom to explore exactly what art is.
