the project



Broadly considered, Modernism represented multi-disciplinary cultural expressions from art, architecture, the applied arts, music and literature beginning in the early twentieth century. With the aid of the machine and the idea of practical experimentation, Modernism’s progressive stance crossed political, social, and artistic boundaries across many cultural forms in the Western world. Welcoming change, twentieth-century Modernist thinkers rebelled against nineteenth century standards, beliefs, and systems. They directly encountered the new realities of the industrial and mechanized age that represented permanent and imminent certainties to be embraced by all, especially in the second generation of Modernism that took place after World War II.
