Arts as a whole have a very long history of development. Starting with the ancient times, people used petroglyphic drawings to express and describe the world around them. Those pics contained the whole philosophy and the wisdom of every event. With the flow of time, the notion of art became broader including not only visual components, but audible ones and even writing. The evolution of art finally lead to what we have now. No, I mean we still have painting, music and books and drama as parts of the artistic world, but they are not as popular as the issue I’m going to discuss here.

Modern conceptual art. What associations do you have when you here these words? I know it’s difficult to define it, but if we believe the open web sources, modern conceptual art is the literary-artistic movement, a part of postmodernism, shaped into an independent discipline in 60s in America and Europe. Too dry an explanation, yeah? By the way, I disagree with it. I believe that modern art doesn’t have any clear definition at all and it’s also a part of the concept it represents, a part of the performance. The last issue is actually the most popular display of conceptual art nowadays.
