Abstract:   (6946 Views)
The art of the 20th century’s first half, indicates various responses by art movements such as Dadaism and Surrealism towards modern technologies.
Certain intellectuals including Martin Heidegger took varied position regarding technology. By proposing a phenomenological stance, he challenges
the natural approach of man toward the appearances of technology, and ultimately announces that the essence of modern technology has dominated
over other ontological relations of man and has reduced human world to mere technological relations. Now, the questions is, drawing on Heidegger’s critique, is it possible to make a philosophical account of the responses of Dadaist and Surrealist artists toward technology? The present study, tries to affirm its hypothesis regarding the existence of shared components in Heidegger’s ideas and work of the above mentioned artists, by providing a symmetrical reading of the two. Therefore, this research adopts a philosophical approach, by which it will be concluded that we may consider the skepticism and pessimism towards technology and also the probability of the emersion of a Dystopia, as common points of the connection between Heidegger and Dadaism and Surrealism in the realm of technology.
Keywords: Technology, the Machine, Phenomenology, Surrealism, Dadaism
