Destructivism is one of the most popular artforms of the 21st century, based on the principle of deconstruction.
The history Destructivism is actually quite young, it's underground existence of more than 18 years has lead up to the creation of the movement. Official records insists it was founded on September 17th 2007 by a Dutch Atheist Extremist, though sources are questionable. Records say the movement was created after the realisation that everything had already been done before; therefore art can only go back the path. Many works of destructive art have been found over the years, though it tends to be hard to put them back together. It was only recent scientific research, that actually named the movement: Destructivism (by lack of inspiration).
Popular culture is full of destructivim's , in recent years it's becoming more and more mainstream, evident in the public participation in large scale Destructivistic projects such as:
- The collapse of the Tower of Babel.
- The fall of the Berlin Wall
- Prominent Creationists Zeus, God and Buddha e.a., stated in the conclusion of their report on Intelligent Design that;
"There can't be Destructivism without Creationism."
- Alan Sokal during his final plea:
"But why did I do it? I confess that I'm an unabashed Old Leftist who never quite understood how deconstruction was supposed to help the working class."
- Anthony Kiedis' disgust of destructivism is shown in the song Californication;
Many of today's Destructivists argue that destruction should never lead to construction, which would contradict it's reason of existence thus, rendering the artform useless.
