If the ages of science and reason and industry led to the mayhem and suffering of that war, these artists asked, why should anyone have faith in logic, reason, or the beauty of art when life seems so arbitrary, desolate, and deranged?

Dada and Surrealism
Surrealism is a cultural revolutionary campaign that was started by Dada in Paris after the devastation of the WWI in the early 1920s. Dada was intended to jolt the society into cognizance as to the ideal and real world. Following into Dada’s initiative, the world has assumed its role through writing of manifestos that, though lacking in a common style, are affiliated in disapproving of the world’s uncurbed progress, intellectual conventions, rationalism, and idealism. The movement took shape in 1924 when founder André Breton, a renowned surrealist, wrote, and inaugurated his book, Manifesto of Surrealism. Reprobation of logic and reason is part of surrealism that advocates dreams, abstract entities, and unconsciousness (Melzer 37).
