American society in the aftermath of WWI is distinguished by an effort to define itself resulting from a desire of emancipation from the then prevailing European model. All over the country important transformations took place with industrialization and the growing impact of capitalism or multiple immigration waves. On cultural and artistic grounds, such an incentive can be exemplified by the emergence of new forms.

From surrealism to social networks to the "real" housewives of New Jersey, it's no secret that reality is socially constructed. "Reality"—-as a state of mind or as an embodied experience—-has historically been positioned in opposition to such realms of infinite possibility as dreams, fantasy, and imagination. In fact, far from being a state of stability and sanity, reality is often treated as that which must be escaped. But escape to what?

Attending (to) the Party: Orientations and Simulacra of Public and Private Sites

Everyone's alone — or so it seems to me.
They make noises, and think they are talking to each other;

T.S. Eliot
