A lot of artists tried the experiment on the art in a wide field in Paris from the late 19the to the early 20th century.
Especialy, young artists gathered in cafè-consert(music cafe)and the cabaret at that time, were doing the experimental activity of various genres such as visual art, music, dance, literature,and plays.
Avant-garde was brought up in the popular culture by motive power of the satire, the humor, and the laugh to the society at that time. It spread to not only Paris but also Vienne and Berlin, and it developed into a social culture at Belle Epoque at the end of 19th century.
