Arte Povera

A movement and style in art that originated in Italy back in the 1960s. It combines concepts of minimalists, performance and conceptual art by making use of common or worthless materials like newspapers or stones with the hope of subverting the process of art commercialization.

Postmodernism

Postmodernism is artwork which sought to make visual statements against authority, to remove boundaries between art and everyday life, and to bridge gaps between the cultural elite and popular masses. Art in this movement embraces many earlier conventions and styles in eclectic mixtures.
