Dansaekhwa

This group of Korean paintings started in the mid-1970's. Sometimes called "Tansaekhwa" meaning "monochrome painting" in Korean, these artworks involved pushing paint, soaking the canvas, ripping the paper or some form of manipulation with painting materials.

Neo-Dada

Minor visual and audio art movement whose intent is similar to that of Dada artwork. While this art is a revival of some of Dada's objectives, Neo Dada emphasizes the importance of produced artwork rather than the concept used to generate the work. It is regarded as the foundation of Pop art, Nouveau realisme and Fluxus. It is known for its use of absurdist contrast, popular imagery and modern materials.

Generative Art

It refers to art wholly or partly created through a special autonomous system. In this context, the autonomous system can be an independent or a non human one, capable of determining its features that would otherwise be determined by the artist. The generative system can take the creator's role or his artistic creator. Generative art is often used to refer to the algorithmically computer generated work.
