“The icons produced with common meanings and messages in this process are the patterns of art, political life, religion, culture and subculture. The common adoption of the meaning of these units gives the basis of any visual language. From the perspective of our approach to the question of confusion, the change of the role of icons plays an important part in the sense of chaos. The signs of a politically and ideologically conducted world in any kind of totalitarian system could play with the visuals by segregating the ideological from the commercial, and moreover by separating the local use of symbols from their global sources and essential meanings. Democracy as a system opens up all of the possible uses of visual messages, which leads to parallel appearances of very different patterns. The reading of these differences is open to intellectuals up to the point where the symbols are no longer a part of the self expression of local or global – less known – subcultures. The long history of the function of this practice of communities creating and using images is without doubt, just as the quantity of the used images increases with global culture, linked to the possibility for greater access to these languages, something that becomes more and more difficult.” (Extras from Zsolt Petranyi, “Chaos: The age of confusion”, Pavilion no.9/reader BB2)

In October 1917, during the First World War, a group of young artists in neutral Holland joined forces to create a magazine. Called De Stijl, it presented and promoted this new, innovative art.
