Contemporary Art

Contemporary art describes avant-garde or innovative art created in the recent past or the present day. The date describing the beginning of contemporary art varies by the institutions which exhibit the style. The museums often date the era based on their founding year.

Capitalist Realism

Capitalist realism is a German form of political pop art which sought to challenge the influence American pop art had developed in the Western world. The Cold War era Berlin movement began in 1963, and represented the ideologies of both pop art and socialist realism.

Portmanteau word that was coined by James Seehafer, an American artist in 1992.
