The concept of avant-garde refers primarily to artists, writers, composers and thinkers whose work is opposed to mainstream cultural values and often has a trenchant social or political edge. Many writers, critics and theorists made assertions about vanguard culture during the formative years of modernism, although the initial definitive statement on the avant-garde was the essay Avant-Garde and Kitsch by New York art critic Clement Greenberg, published in Partisan Review in 1939. As the essay’s title suggests, Greenberg argued that vanguard culture has historically been opposed to "high" or "mainstream" culture, and that it has also rejected the artificially synthesized mass culture that has been produced by industrialization. Each of these media is a direct product of Capitalism—they are all now substantial industries—and as such they are driven by the same profit-fixated motives of other sectors of manufacturing, not the ideals of true art. For Greenberg, these forms were therefore kitsch: phony, faked or mechanical culture, which often pretended to be more than they were by using formal devices stolen from vanguard culture. For instance, during the 1930s the advertising industry was quick to take visual mannerisms from surrealism, but this does not mean that 1930s advertising photographs are truly surreal. It was a matter of style without substance. In this sense Greenberg was at pains to distance true avant-garde creativity from the market-driven fashion change and superficial stylistic innovation that are sometimes used to claim privileged status for these manufactured forms of the new consumer culture.
From the early 20th century, the expression was mainly any experimental or innovative idea or application in all fields of human activity, mainly in the areas of art, culture and even politics. As a concept identified with everything bold, theoretically pre-season as a wonderful harbinger of future application or acceptance. Certainly in this sense is not a few cases, with the innovative nature of this expression can also be considered a revolutionary in the status quo and come into conflict with traditional ideologies and principles followed, characterized even as unorthodox or extremist. :thumb362346883:

Hippocrates claims that everything creates from the 4 elements, each of which corresponds the status of cold, dry, hot, liquid.
In solid body components prevail earthy and the watery liquid. Coherent essence of everything is spirit that warm innate in humans and it is located in the heart. Fundamentals body fluids are blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black. Of balance and imbalance depends health or disease..
In the body resides a great animal power, the nature. Since this force depends on the maintenance, development, and treatment of the body and restore to normal. This is the conception of the genius mind of Hippocrates. That balance of the bio-energy potential of the organisms. Hippocrates does not detect the disease in organs. He believes that the body is sick or treated as a whole and thus the patient is treated with a completely different eye and perspective. As a result Art-anatomy has her own Corpus Hippocraticum and her big philosophical reflection of the body on the a big vow on that presentation. :thumb29737578: What is mean to be a wo-man?

Tragale smo u okeanu umjetničkih djela, tražeći nit koja će nas spajati, nudeći tišinu i buku podjednako, ne očekujući da nas razumiju oni koji to ne mogu ...tragale smo i pronašle simfoniju različitosti !
