Modernity on the other hand, describes large-scale developments of society (including literature and philosophy). Modernism describes an art movement. Neither applies to pol…itical, social, or series of events since either the fin de siècle or World War I in a strict sense.. "Postmodernism", coined 1949, on the other hand, would describe rather a movement in art than a period of history, and is usually applied to arts, but not to any events of the very recent history.
it differs because it is spelled differently than any other artforms
DADA was kind of this anti-art movement that started in the early 20th century to protest the war and all of society's crazy values. It eventually dissipated as it became popu…lar and thus pointless. Man Ray, Max Ernst, and Marcel Duchamp were all considered part of this movement. This led to SURREALISM which wanted to express images from the subconscious. They looked at dreams and such. Dali and Picasso were both part of this movement at one time. It was led by Andre Breton. Picasso started CUBISM with Georges Braque. Inspired by primitive art, this movement changed the way we looked at painting in general. It was more 2-D. They tried different techniques, sometimes showing multiple perspectives in the same picture. EXPRESSIONISM and THE FAUVES have also left their mark on art history. They both used flat form and solid colors in their painting, inspired by primitive art as well. The Fauves were a pretty happy lot with Henri Matisse and Andre Derain as their leaders. Expressionists were generally a little more dark, trying to express their inner universes, a philosophy that carries on today. They were inspired by Vincent van Gogh and Edvard Munch. The FUTURISTs tried to portray movement in a still work of art. There were also a variety of other art movements that came and left with little mark on art history. After World War II, ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM became very popular. They may have been inspired by Wassily Kadinsky who's tried painting music in the early 20th century. Jackson Pollock is who I consider to be a leader of this movement. To protest abstract expressionism, POP ART was born. It made art out of common images of our lives. Very artificial and detached. Rebellious, ironic, and funny. Andy Warhol is generally considered one of the greatest pop artists of all time. I really don't know what the heck POST-CONTEMPORARY or POST-MODERN means. The Modern Movement is believed to be the whole of all art movements between the beginning of the 20th century and the end of WWII. It refers to a kind of thinking in art that the academic art of the past should be rejected. Once again, I have no clue how post-modern art can be identified as an actual way of thinking about art. Some people believe post-modern means that we can now look at old academic art and the modern art that protested it and learn from both, but generally it seems post-modern artists just continue the tradition of rejecting traditional art through new methods like PERFORMANCE ART and LANDSCAPE ART. Important art movements in the that have continued into the 21st century are MINIMALISM (tried to strip down works to the fundamental features--imagine a box...yeah), NEW CLASSICISM (pretty much old renaissance like techniques with a modern setting), CONCEPTUAL ART (asks the question "What is art?"), LOWBROW ART (punk revolution meets the fine visual arts), and NEO-EXPRESSIONISM (pretty much expressing inner emotions like the expressionist, but with more modern techniques in painting). A variety of people, inspired by the art movements of the 20th century, try to create their own art movements. These movements include THINKISM and OMNI ART and will only be mentioned in passing in art history books if mentioned at all. (Which they probably won't). Anyway, I hope my extended answer will be of some help for you. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Art_movements_in_20th_to_21st_century#ixzz1zLIc7yj4
