The absurdist movement is one of the most hilarious and depressing artistic and philosophical movements. After all the death and horror of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, people started realizing that the institutions and beliefs that they put their faith in - the government, the church, the military, technology, society, etc. - were not intrinsically right. The only reason they had any power or sway is because people let them have power and sway. In short, people started to realize that the foundations they had built their life upon had no foundations themselves. This led to the modernist movement.
