All that changed over time. Art became

All throughout time there
had been many changes in social, economical and political issues; however, they
were not the only things that changed over time. Art became a challenge where
artists began to find new ways of expressing themselves, the people and the
society they lived in. These changes became something called art movements. The
Avant Garde movements is a big group of many different art movements that came
within a time period. This group was made to introduce and explore new forms
and subject matters. During the 19th century it first appeared in
France and was originally said for the new approaches to art making; however, it’s
a term that can be used to describe art that pushes the boundaries of

Meaning that even if the
Avant Garde had many movements involved within it; nonetheless, each movement
stood for something different but influenced from each other. There were
several movements before neo-plasticism came to the public allowing it to be
influenced by them like cubism. Two of these influential movements were moving
the society, one is neo-plasticism and the other is deconstructivism. These two
movements came one after the other, both with very strong opinions and changes
concerning the world of art. Even though they came between a century of time
and many years separate them yet they still have some similarities. Further on
the similarities and differences will be explained more in detail to show how
two movements that weren’t coming after each other directly can still have some
similar aspects but with a new twist. 

Avant Garde as said above
was a group containing many art movements, which are some how similar to each
other, some relate as they came one after the other, and others relate by how
they reach the viewers eye. De Stijl, also known as neo plasticism, is related
in many aspects to the other art movement, deconstructivism. The two movements
where found during the same century during the 1900’s. Even though they didn’t
come straight after each other yet they have many similarities. There is also a
similarity between them in the aspect of design. The two movements’ designs are
based on shapes, lines and form. In many of the architecture there is traces of
straight and clean edged lines, which form the structure of the building. This is also present in
neo-plasticism where they use simple shapes to make high-tech and complex
building designs. The images below show how the two movements are some how
similar in their building designs. They both have solid, and rigid looking
buildings, and with the use of straight lines on different angles they shape the outside of the building designs. 

The two movements are also similar in a way they both have
they use of basic and simple colour schemes. The colour scheme in each is
unified and is used all through the architecture, there isn’t surprises in
colours or something out of the ordinary. They are both using one colour scheme
to present their meaning and principles to the viewer. The choice of a specific
colour scheme has an effect on the viewers emotions, and in both movements the
colour is a big characteristic which give out feelings and reactions to the
observer. The images below show how each of the movements have a unified colour
throughout the same design. For example, the image on the left, from De Stijl,
shows the primary colour scheme being used for the balcony colours and a simple
grey schemed building, making it look unified with the building next to it. The
image on the right shows deconstructivism designs in architecture and it shows
the grey scheme being used, which was also present in neo-plasticism building
designs. The grey is changed to a metallic shade but its still from the same
colour scheme. The two images show a unified colour scheme throughout the
building designs making it a special and strong standing building.

The art movements are expressed in many different things,
they’re expressed in architecture, artworks, products and interiors. The
artworks of both movements are similar in the way they both use bright primary
colours in their work. Shapes and lines are also present in each to define what
the artist is trying to give to the viewer. These art pieces can be said to be
made in the same time period but different artists interpreting the same thing.

However, they are from two different art movements and yet they use the same
colours to express each of their movements’ characteristics. There is also a
similarity between them where they use geometric shapes to form the art piece rather
than a free hand drawing.

As the Avant Garde has many
movements that connect in characteristics yet some can differ, not only in characteristics
but also when they started. De Stijl came in the beginning of the 1900’s;
however, deconstructivism came during the end of the 1900’s. Neo-plasticism and
deconstructivism have many aspects in common yet they still have differences. De
Stijl was one of the basic art movements with very clear characteristics shown;
however, deconstructivism is one of the art movements that has curved lines and
unorganized shapes. Concerning architecture, de stijl has unified and repeated
designs; nevertheless, deconstructivism has very complex and special designs
for each building made. They use the aspect of creativity in most of their
designs to show the complex characteristics of the movement. Neo-plasticism was
one of the movements that could be said to be very simple, and basic, which
their influence from cubism was very clear but deconstructivism was a movement
that broke the sense of form.
