Description

Since 1910 artistic Avant-garde start to reach higher and higher levels of abstraction and progressively leave art as imitation behind. In France Cubism and Fauvism emerge and can somehow coexist with more conservative artistic institutions, while Germany and Italy see the rise of Expressionism and Futurism, two movements that, irrespective of their differences, both aspire to a fusion of art and life, one of the main dogmatic conflicts of the modern art movement. In open opposition to all academic authority these two movements develop formal experiences highlighting the importance of myth and collective instinct in social life. Meanwhile avant-garde architecture strives to create an "overall piece of art" and approaches the sphere of visual art. Thereby idealistic or utopian architecture artists emerge who, lacking the opportunity to construct, design fantastic and imaginative architectural and urban models. These models stretch the borders of architectural thinking and illustrate tendencies of the history of modern architecture. Besides describing these two instances of utopian design, namely Expressionism and Futurism, this investigation presents Surrealism as a moment that relates architecture to the world of desire and the surreal irrational, affirming the liberating power of the dreamt art and architecture as a tribute to materialized architecture. The architectural utopias proposed in these three moments are not more than pencils, colours and ink gliding over paper. The analysis and understanding of these "paper architectures" is the subject of the present investigation
