Definitions About Brecht

Definitions about Brecht:

Modernism: A movement which highlights the human ability to create.
Progress and the"new" is important and highly valued. This segued
into post-modernism where interpretation is up to the individual and
critiques established traditionalism.

Neue Sachlichkeit: (new sobriety, new objectivity, new matter-of-factness)
Brecht's work in the 1920's especially identifies with this approach
which values collaboration over the individual.
