Modernism and Avant-garde movements

The turn of the century brought new winds of modernity. The aesthetic sensibility of the time was marked by a different, freer attitude towards art and life. In 1888, Rubén Darío led the literary Modernism movement. In Spain, a group of architects revolving around the figure of Antoni Gaudí invented a new style of creating and designing buildings: this became known as architectural Modernism, which flourished until the 1920s. Shortly after, a handful of artistic movements which arose in the period between the two World Wars (1918-1939) shook the cultural and intellectual life of the time to its foundations. Ultraism, Surrealism, Futurism and Dadaism brought vitality and radical renewal to the world of art, both in its classical manifestations and in its newer incarnations such as film. In Spain, the avant-garde creators would ultimately come together in what was known as the Generation of 27.
