After the experience of the First World War, when irrationality and violence seemed to pervade the human experience, expressionism in opera and ballet flourished. One of the most famous and powerful examples was the opera Wozzeck , by Alban Berg (1885-1935). Some composers, led by Schonberg , abandoned traditional harmony and tonality.

The movie factories and stars like Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, Douglas Fairbanks, Rudolph Valentino, and Charlie Chaplin created a new medium and a new culture.

Radio Radio, which became possible with Marconi’s “wireless ” communication and the development of the vacuum tube, permitted transmission of speech and music, but major broadcasting did not begin until 1920. Then every country established national broadcasting networks; by the late 193Os, three of four households in Britain and Germany had a radio . Great Britain created a middle way between private ownership and government (state) ownership of their radio network (BBC). Dictators and presidents used the radio for political propaganda.
