Postmodernism

  1. 1. Shivonne Weekes Esere Simei-Akajagbo
  2. 2. WHAT IS MODERNISM? Modern character or quality of thought, expression, or technique. Also it's along with cultural trends and changes, arose from wide-scale and far- reaching transformations Modernism was in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Modernism is about new ideas, new ideas all the time.
  3. 3. WHAT IS MODERNISM? Modernism is also rejected the certainty of Enlightenment thinking, and many modernists rejected religious belief. Some commentators define Modernism as a socially progressive trend of thought that affirms the power of human beings to create, improve and reshape their environment with the aid of practical experimentation, scientific knowledge, or technology. The dominant trends of industrial Victorian England, were also opposed, from about 1850, by the English poets and painters because of their "opposition to technical skill without inspiration
  4. 4. WHAT IS POSTMODERNISM? Postmodernism suggests that the popular culture and media texts dominate our sense of reality The way we define ourselves and the world is influenced by the media 'Media Saturated'- This is the idea that we pick and mix our styles/ identities as their is so much choice.
  5. 5. WHAT IS POSTMODERNISM? It is argued that the distinctions between media and reality This is because we live in a world of images and representations Often defined as 'simulated' and 'hyper reality'
  6. 6. WHAT IS POSTMODERNISM? Simulation or Hyper reality? Baudrillard's Theory: media creates such idealistic representations of reality Hyper reality- not sure whether it's real or artificial Simulation- is when the media represents reality in a more visual and interactive way Due to the distinctions between media and reality collapsing However- negative effect The audience is left feeling depressed as their own life doesn't live up to this artificial reality
  7. 7. WHAT IS POSTMODERNISM ? Bricolage - Something made or put together using whatever materials happen to be available. So for example with films when there is hybridity such as RomCom that's bricolage because it's putting two things together that already exist.
  8. 8. EXAMPLES OF POSTMODERNISM? Blade Runner 1982 Pulp Fiction 1994 It's Pomo because: It demonstrates a mixture of cultures, boundaries and style in art Films Music It's Pomo because: It fractures time by the use of asynchronous time lines Genres It's Pomo because: There's a variety of music that the media allows society to access We can pick and mix out identities.
  9. 9. EXAMPLES OF MODERNISM? Manet you see his way of painting In titian painting you see nudes This shows the change over time and how people see things differently. Which is modernism because new trends over time and new ideas Paintings
  10. 10. HOW DOES POMO DIFFER FROM MODERNISM? Modernism is all about new trends, changes and ideas coming from our minds and not being influenced by anything. So it's about being creative. Whereas postmodernism is everything is changing and judge by the media so it's being less creative and everything is defined by the media.
