While mass culture presupposes endless replication with minor variations, the art of an elite prides itself on uniqueness, radical originality, and often a conceptual impenetrability except to the initiated. As part of the initial reception, there has often been a desire to shock, though over time this aspect becomes dulled as public perceptions change. Dadaists’ films nowadays seem tame rather than shocking, since some of their innovations, such as those in Hans Richter’s Rhythmus 21 (1921), have been appropriated into mainstream forms—for example, music videos using abstract images moving to music.
