Transgressive art


Art that confronts or breaks one or more social taboos. Transgressive art is a shocking art, designed to insult social conservatives of one sort or another. Social conservatives typically consider transgressive art scandalous.The appearance of transgressive art in the modernist movement can be ascribed to the Enlightenment, the late 18th and mid 19th centuries revolutions in France and other European countries, and reactions to bourgeois values and wars of the period.
