Further Biographical Context for Jòzsef Csillag
Born in 1894, Jòzsef Csillag was primarily inspired by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the dynamic development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an era of experimentation, with artists delving 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 applications of art in response to the terrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement inspired directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and established the careers of renowned 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.
