Barbie Curvy

In recent years Mattel has been flooded with criticism for his size and Barbie’s life so decided a sea change for a company often criticized for representing a stereotypical beauty. Today, with this new operation, all women can identify with the nearest to your physical model. in my opinion this is a representative case of imperfect beauty.

Who Know His Name?

Bansky it is one of the greatest exponents of street art. The artist’s real name is not known. His works are often satirical background and cover topics such as politics, culture and ethics. He manages to push through his ideas while remaining anonymous and not seeking fame. I consider it an imperfect beauty as the issues he deals with are often bloody and deep but who embody the whole spirit of contemporary street art.

My Peluche Needs a Transplant

An organization in Japan care broken toys taking the pieces from others. Objective: to teach children what is a transplant. The idea is that a donor organization provides a toy that does not use from which will be explanted organs (ie the pieces) which will then be used to repair another broken toy. The donor will receive in return a letter with photos of the repaired toy and his happy owner and from there will start a discussion with friends and family about the importance of organ donation.

Dispatchwork

Jan Vormann is a German artist became famous thanks to a truly original idea: to fill the cracks of old walls, buildings and dilapidated structures with Lego bricks. The experiment, despite his art studies in Berlin, began during a visit to Rome by that time, thanks to his travels that have taken him around the world, has managed to put his signature everywhere. the aim is, through a satirical criticism, counter excessive seriousness of the citizens groups and to make them more cheerful and livable spaces.

The Art Of The Internet

By the term net art, which is also referred with Internet art, it refers to a contemporary artistic discipline aimed at creating works of art with, for and in the Internet. This art form has bypassed the traditional domain of the Museums and Galleries circuit, leaving the main role of the experience of aesthetic enjoyment to the Internet or other electronic networks. In many cases, viewing the work it is disintegrated in a particular kind of interaction with the artistic work. Artists working in this way are often called net artist. A well-known theorist Lev Manovich, net art, says it is “the materialization of social networks on the internet communications.” In fact the precursor group of this artistic movement has been able to create an artistic genre especially through its ability to create networks and connect programmers worldwide around a creative practice but also ironic. Net.art fact has played a lot with the parody, with error and with the disintegration of the web pages.

Revolutional Art

Arte Povera is a modern art movement. The term was coined by Italian art critic Germano Celant and introduced in Italy during the period of upheaval at the end of the 1960s, when artists were taking a radical stance. Artists began attacking the values of established institutions of government, industry, and culture.

Cementified Memory

In the 1980s, Burri created a form of land art project on the town of Gibellina in Sicily. The town was abandoned following the1968 Belice earthquake, with the inhabitants being rehoused in a newly built town 18 km away. Burri covered an area of over 120,000 square metres (1,300,000 sq ft), most of the old town, and an area roughly 300 metres by 400 metres with white concrete. He called this the Grande Cretto.
