Further Biographical Context for Bernt Clüver

Bernt Clüver was born in 1897 and was predominantly influenced by the 1900s and 1910s growing up. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These decades were an time of experimentation, with artists exploring into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These innovations inspired artist communities and collectives across the globe, with many groups exploring a variety of methods of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists started to explore psychological uses of art in response to the horrors they had witnessed. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to a number of countries across Europe and began the careers of well known artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Hannah Höch and Kurt Schwitters. The movement of Surrealism, inspired by ideas concerning psychology and the subconscious which were first developed by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
