the ones that started putting out toilets and stuff were the dadaists. they wanted to throw out all old art that was "false" to put is shortly. however thier direction of provoative are was a dead end. so from the dadists rose the surrealism with artists such as Salvador Dali.    
Tldr ; surrealism would not have come to be if it was not for some provocative art.   
 this was a very short description so I have missed tons of stuff. please forgive me

I thought that surrealism was like 1920 and dadaist was around the same time. From what I learned in Dutch class Dadaïsm was about using letters and words as poetry by using the sound. So things like: BRmmm Tst trrrr and barking and ****.

But.. I've drawn an upside down toilet as part of a landscape once because I was bored and the assignment was to draw a 2 point landscape. You have no idea how hard it is to draw a toilet from two point perspective without making it blocky.

I just finished doing a teddy bear surrealism thing as well, inspired by a muse video I once saw... please don't hurt me for not being in your definition of art, I just sometimes enjoy drawing random/metaphorical things for the **** of it.

If you draw well I don't really mind I just don't like the idea of anti-art like dadaïsm which make random sounds and call it poetry, or the cobra movement which just doesn't look like anything. Or a paint drip on a wall being art.

Use of random or invented words can make poetry (dr.seuss), just not random sounds, you're right.

My art teacher is into the cobra movement. I'm more into putting weird and strange objects where they shouldn't be or in odd proportions, like a teddy bear that dwarfs a city or an alien in a living room.

A realist see good and bad things as equally plausible, and know that the outcome will be determined by factors that can for the most time be controlled - As well as accepting that some things can't be averted or fix no matter how ****** and unfair it feels.

Being a realist just means you see the world for what is. As someone who may or may not be what you'd call a realist, I see that the world is a pretty ****** up place, but I believe that things will change, most likely when we (those currently alive) are all dead. So I will do what I feel is necessary to try and make living on this messed up rock called Earth as bearable as possible for myself and those around me.

You sure you're not just delusional? Statistically speaking the world is far worse off than it is better off. The biosphere for example is going to bleed in the future, geopolitically speaking a global financial collapse, or some general catastrophe is likely to happen, and corruption is so deep rooted a long steady decay seems likely.

The biggest nation on the Earth is pretty perfect Russia, the one of the highest population is toxic river China... The leaders of the modern world are full of plenty of very bad issues, like runaway debt and laws that are bought. Special interest.

We can cherish the good becuase it's so scarce, but I think realism means accepting the dark reality.

I feel if we delude ourselves... then the world will never change.

Actually, Statistically speaking there are problems, and they are important things we need to deal with, but things are not as bad off as you make them seem. Statistically speaking, crime rates are at an all-time low for all of history, and getting lower. It's that bad news makes a good story people want to hear, so the Media covers it The human population is living longer, healthier lives than ever before, which are, in general, only getting better. The global economy has been getting better in recent years too, just slowly in a more controlled manner that's less apparent than the rapid rises and crashes we had before.

Life isn't as bad as it almost always seems, but that is because humans are designed to never be satisfied, and to always see what's wrong, so that we'll always be improving and striving for a better way, and to fix any errors that come up from our previous solutions.

Crime rates as reported in the "modern world"? Right? What about the hundreds of millions who live in places were such information cannot be gathered? Human beings are not healthy. Cancer and disease is rising, carcinogens, bad lifestyle, and toxins are as well. Statistically these rates are higher near more polluted zones, but of course no one pays any attention to that. Lifespan statistics in the past are kind of botched. considering infant mortality, lack of hygiene, and knowledge of how illness spreads/works. The economy is not the issue I really think it's the bigger picture. Global debt is basically runaway and unsustainable. We can keep spurting from a long time but we are going the wrong way. The ending is not good.

I think life is worse than most people make it out to be. Life is a struggle and we humans built up walls around ourselves and fooled ourselves into simple mindedness. "This isn't supposed to happen" "This isn't allowed" "that is not normal" etc. We face serious problems, my only fear is that we will never get around to solving them.

Thousands of years, stories written so long ago are still relevant today. We still wage war. We make the same mistakes.

Also consider proportion and scale. Even if statistically there is less percentages of stuff like "crime" you have to remember we have a larger population. With this in mind, you must realize that more people are suffering than every before in human history.

The stakes get higher with every passing generation. Resources get lower, governments get more contrived. The world isn't truly staying the same. It is changing. We will face consequences one day. We are headed towards a climax.

I want... I need poeple to see that. Afterall... my children, or my childrens children... they will inherent the instabilities their parents failed to change.

My main issue is that the places where that information can't be gathered is getting smaller and smaller, Heck, most of Africa is both modernized, and becoming remarkably urban, despite what people think. Cancer is rising, but disease is going down, people would get sick FAR more often before hygiene methods and antibiotics, also the reason cancer rates are growing in cases is because of pollutants, another big reason is because we're living long enough for it to start kicking in more, and we're living healthily enough to be active longer and exposing ourselves to more risk of carcinogens. To scale, The global dept is extremely large, but dept works differently for nations than for people, and I know of at least one founding father who would want us to get even more dept, for the good of the nation. Lifespan statistics are valid, because we have striven to improve and so solved the majority of the infant mortality, how to use hygiene, and studied how illness works.

I think that life, although far from perfect, is better than people believe it to be. Life is a struggle and we humans are built for it, and thrive off of it to further improve ourselves and face the serious issues.

Thousands of years, stories written long ago are still relevant today because we remain human and are the same peoples, that can still connect to those of the past and their core nature that was the same as ours.

Also consider things of scale. Even though more people are on the planet, people are suffering less than ever before in general, and you have to adjust to per capita for good statistics.

The stakes get higher with each generation because people romanticize the past and forget that governments were just as contrived, and resources were just as limited as they couldn't access as much of them as we can, but we get better with using them, we are heading towards progression.

There are still issues, I want people to see that, after all my children will inherit my issues, like I did.

China, Russia. I wouldn't call that small. Highly corrupt. Even the modern world is highly corrupt. From business, to the legislature. Personally I think you're a little too naive. The more we ignore, the less we see. The less we see, easier and easier it becomes to drive off that cliff.

Maybe you just got lucky in life, because you seem quite optimistic. Knowing what I know I just can' agree. We're going to survive, but the future I see is gray. It's just like the world now, just more strained. If the world is ugly now, that will be even uglier.

The **** that goes on behind close doors... you'd be sickened if you could hear all the screaming and suffering that I do. At least it feels that way.

China and Russia are a part of the modern world, and the Chinese government is about to crash like you wouldn't believe(or at the very least their economy and population happiness), Russia is being controlled by a "democracy" with Putin in charge, but has been on the decline for some time, and is on the rise as Putin gets older and the citizens keep getting fed up with his BS(though it mostly looks like they're currently just apathetic enough to let it continue). Rome's government was highly corrupt and still managed to last hundreds of years up to and through its golden age, and early america was highly corrupt too, look up Aaron Burr, sometime.
I do not ignore the issues and problems we face, I just refuse to believe that humanity has truly separated itself from what it used to be, in terms of its nature, and it managed rather well being the way it was in remarkably similar situations.

Maybe I just got lucky in life? Oh no doubt about that, I am tremendously lucky to be in the middle class and able to afford several luxuries, I am lucky that the public education I received is regarded as one of the best schools in the state, and that instead of a regular high school I get to go to a public Academy for Science and Math where I can push myself and have come to flourish. From this perspective, I find that I think the government and the situation isn't as bad off as it's made out to be, and as ugly as it may seem, life is rarely pretty, not for any length of time.

The **** that goes on behind closed doors I've found in my experiences inside the government just isn't nearly so bad or grand as people believe it is, and as sickening as it may seem, I'm a minister's kid, I've heard and seen the effects of some true tragedies and suffering, but I always find hope and a positive light with the people who face those harsh situations.

You see, the problem with speaking in terms of likeliness is that everything in the world is extraordinarily unlikely. I'm not anywhere near talented enough to calculate the exact odds, but realize that, to even make that comment, there had to be
a creation of the universe, in some form or another
gasses and **** form a star
asteroids and **** get around that star, form planet
planet is actually habitable
every single generation making it more and more unlikely for you to have been created
technology such as this to be created
you to be born in a place that has easy access to this technology
you to feel like making the comment

I know I missed a ******* of steps, but that's rather irrelevant.
The statistical near impossibilities have all happened, so why worry about them? Instead of worrying about the future, love the now and work on making the now a better place. If you do, the future might be better as well. Or, it might be terribly worse off. So why worry?

Because I know too much, they say ignorance is bliss? It's different when you don't see what hurts you, but when you face everything... ah... how is a man to feel? I feel the real problem is that we humans changed the unlikely. We manipulated but we can't beat mother nature. We have yet to progress to such a stage. And our rate we may never make it.

I worry because we live and die in a blink of an eye. How pointless. How ugly. What does it even mean to be alive? If we can't even get the world right what is our species really worth? I can only hope we manage to make things right, but I feel too many people ignore the realities.

Oh, it all depends on how you look at it. In the grand scheme of things, we live in a blink of an eye, yes, but, in the grand scheme, nothing matters, no matter how long it lives.
We live forever if you look at it from the perspective of, say, a fly or something.
And the future? That's later. Don't worry about the future, you can't do anything about what the current future is. You focus on the now, you focus on the good, and you try to make a little more good in the world, who knows what might happen.

Well I suffer chronic pain, insomnia and poor health, economically I'm ****** and having nothing to my name, I don't have many options and grew up/am bound to a rather dysfunctional family. I can't just leave and find some decent job somewhere, I face a lot of obstacles and physical limitations. In short, I must function like a completely normal being while bearing the mental and physical weights that most are free of. Any dreams I have are directly affected by the nature of society as well.

I suppose I can't shake off the sense of responsibility. I wish I was born with less empathy. I know what you mean, but I just can't be completely happy knowing the way things are. I guess it's just a part of who I am.

i would like to make an amendment to my comment. i meant to put the keword "most" at the begining if my comment, but forgot to do so. i also identify myself as a realist and it's because of the negatives in my life that i am able to appreciate the positives that much more. and as a result i am usually happier than my sunshine and daisy optimist friends.

Allright, with this I can agree. I have also noticed I'm a lot more happier than most people, even in bad situations.

man, i had a whole long rant lined up for your initial comment and everything. i even used the phrase " count douche-ula, if you will take the liberty of rereading my comment" at which point i myself took the liberty of rereading my own comment.... and deleted the whole ******* thing. alas, i have fallen victim to the mighty typo yet again.

how come the first guy got so many downvotes? it's not like he said anything bad, he just said people that claim to be realists are usually cynical assholes.

Art is so ******* stupid... and before you idiots say **** like video games are art, tv is art, movies are art, just shut up. I'm only talking about museum pieces. **** specifically made to hang on a wall. That's the stupid **** I hate.

Listen here you uncultured swine. Art is a timeline of how human ideals, perceptions of beauty, and our definition of perfection have evolved since the earliest times of human life, not only that but the art of ancient illiterate cultures are our primary source as to what life may have been like for them.

Which is why art USED to be important. It no longer is now. We can take a ******* picture, or better yet RECORD something. We don't need to spend hours painting stupid **** like a red box.

No I completely agree with how modern art fr the most part is crap because people have become too liberal with the meaning.

The thing is, art isn't simply copying what the world is. It's showing how the world is through a single moment in time.

It's just completely useless. Only people who actually do things with it are ok like video game designers or set designers for movies. If you just paint stupid pictures then I hate you and you need to stop wasting your time.

Art is like a book, it tells a story in ways that are not completely obvious. And it makes you feel amazing when you understand the implications of it, whereas pictures are obvious and not as fulfilling to understand. Let's compare it to math. Do you feel more accomplished when you understand basic addition or something like calculus? The basic addition is your normal hipster photograph, and is not very complex, while the calculus is the fine art which can be seen in the different positioning in body parts and placement of object in incorrect environments. How can you sit there and tell me that Guernica would have the same effect as a picture?

I had to google Guernica because I had no ******* idea what it was. I see it's one of those stupid abstract things that look like nothing at all really but people pretend it's all deep and meaningful. "NAHHHH MAN YOU JUST DON'T GET ITTTT!!!" It looks like absolute ****. That's all it is.

It's about the chaos that ensued after the Germans (testing their weapons via the Spanish Civil War) bombed a small village that only held civilians. It's also the representation of when this happens at other times in history, not just that one. Not a big deal, you just didn't get it.

It was just going along with the content. Idealism, Realism, Surrealism, and Hyper-Realism  are all forms of art.    
   
 I wasn't trying to be edgy, I was just having fun.
