Ephemeral art[note 1] is the name given to any artistic expression conceived under a concept of transience in time, of non-permanence as a material and preservable artistic object. Because of its perishable and transitory nature, ephemeral art does not leave a lasting work, or if it does -as would be the case of fashion- it is no longer representative of the moment in which it was created. In these expressions, the criterion of social taste is decisive, which is the one that sets the trends, for which the work of the media is essential, as well as that of art criticism. The Eiffel Tower, a work of art, is a work of art that is not only a work of art but also a work of art.
The Eiffel Tower, the work of Alexandre Gustave Eiffel for the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889. Although it was built with the purpose of being perishable, due to its success it was decided to keep it, becoming a symbol of the French capital.

Books and works of art are, to one degree or another, builders of stories, images of our reality and targets of the inclinations of our fantasy. We can consider every work of art as a book, only that it is written with signs completely different from words.
Throughout history, there have been several artists who have shown their commitment to literature; and it is possible to observe, in the bulk of their work, the testimony of their relationship with letters and their closeness to the literary world. It is thus possible to speak of the confluence between writers and artists and of the bidirectional relationship that is generated, both disciplines nourishing each other, stimulating creation beyond the conventions established in each historical epoch.
Literary works, for their part, provoke pictorial and literary reflections on the nature of art, the process of creation, the nature of artistic reception and interpretation, and the role of memory and art, both pictorial and literary, in the recovery or invention of the past.
Ephemeral art examples
How did Anne Frank’s diary become one of the most widely read books? And how did Anne become an internationally known icon? Read here how Anne’s diary inspires millions of readers.
Otto and the memory of AnneOtto Frank took on his role as manager of Anne’s diary with determination. On the one hand, he did everything possible to make his daughter’s life and work known through translations of the diary (into more than 30 languages in 1970) and its theatrical adaptation. As a reaction to the Holocaust, he wanted to fight for universal human rights: for both Anne and her father, being Jewish was not inimical to universalism, but on the contrary, embracing it strengthened it. That is why Otto wanted the Anne Frank House to be not only a place for Holocaust remembrance, but also an educational organization where young people from all over the world could seek ways to live together in peace.This led to the establishment of the international youth center within the Anne Frank House, which held annual conferences and meetings where young people discussed such topics as discrimination, democracy, intercultural communication, religion and international cooperation.On the other hand, Otto strictly supervised how Anne’s life and work were publicized. He authorized only a single theatrical adaptation of the diary. Excerpts from Anne’s work could only be used sparingly in books, plays or films. He did not approve the creation of more than a few organizations that wanted to keep Anne’s memory alive, and he banned the sale of official Anne Frank memorabilia.
