What is Multimedia?

Multimedia refers to the art technique of combining several single mediums together into one composition. Sometimes, it is called mixed-media. Artists often create new, personal techniques using combinations of art materials in different ways, and the new techniques become part of their unique artistic style.

Art Informel

Art informel refers to gestural techniques and improvisatory methods common to abstract painting during the 1940s and 50s. It is a French term for the many styles that dominated these decades. Artists use this term because these styles were based on primarily informal techniques.

Tachisme

French abstract painting style that gained popularity between 1940-1950. It is often interpreted as a European equivalent of abstract expressionism. There are however, stylistic differences between the two art types. Tachisme was initially part of Art Informel which in favor of more intuitive expression, left geometric abstraction. Tachisme came as a reaction to artworks of Cubism. However, it is closely related to Informalism.

Auto-destructive art

Auto-destructive art is an invented term used to describe artworks which were destroyed during the process of their creation. Gustaz Metzger clarified his key principles: The work must return to nothingness within 20 years-time, it must be self-completing and include public participation.
