Tempera

Tempera is a paint traditionally made with colored pigments and egg yolks. The paint dries quickly and lasts a very long time. Some examples still remain from 100 AD. Modern tempera paint uses glue size with the colored pigments instead of egg yolks.

Body Print

Depending on the artist's intention, body print may be executed in different ways that include smearing of grease or margarine on the skin, hair and clothes or by pressing oneself against a piece of paper then dust the oiled imprint with the pigment on the ground. The artist's body acts as the common printing plate, the "body print" however, does not work or act as a self portrait. It rather explores 2 competing identity conceptions.

Dada

Also called Dadaism, Dada was a literary and artistic movement that started in 1916 in the area of Zurich, Switzerland. It began as a rejection of rationalism and nationalism which were seen as practices that brought world war I. It also had some political affinities in addition to being an anti world-war I art. Dada activities were demonstrations, gatherings, and the publication of literary/art journals that covered culture and political topics.
