The Explosion of 'Time' in Early Twentieth Century Cubist, Surrealist, Futurist and Kinetic Art

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article looks at the Cubists, Futurists and Kinetic artists and to a lesser degree the Surrealists who took up the challenge of depicting the sense of 'time' and 'movement' in order to reflect and express the dynamism, speed and chaos of the modern city. These were the artists who did not simply hold up a mirror to society but demanded attention, and created some of the most powerful images, expressions and comments on 'time' in the twentieth century.
