Further Biographical Context for Kay Fisker
Born in 1893, Kay Fisker's creative work was largely influenced by the 1900s and 1910s. The first decades of the twentieth century were defined by the vibrant development of visual and pictorial art. These years were an time of experimentation, with artists delving into ideas surrounding Post-Impressionism, Expressionism and Abstraction. These developments inspired artist communities and collectives around the world, with many groups developing different ways of communicating their ideas. After the First World War, artists started to explore psychological applications of art in response to the horrors they had experienced. Dadaism, an absurdist movement influenced directly by the events of the war, spread to many countries across Europe and began 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 initially established by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, was developed from the ideas posed by Dada.
