20th Century Avant-Garde
January 23, 2008 11:13 PM   Subscribe

20th Century Avant-Garde is a great resource guide to experimental art from 1900 onwards. Special sections for dada, the situationists and fluxus. You can also browse by categories such as artists, film and video art, movements in art, publishers and many more. If you're interested in experimental art of the 20th Century you can get lost in this site for hours.

One example of a great resource linked from the site is University of Iowa's Digital Dada Library which has scans of many original dada periodicals, books and leaflets. I was particularly taken with The Blind Man (which was partly written by Marcel Duchamp) and Ilia Zdanevich's Lidantiu faram.
