Post Modernism

  1. 2. Postmodernism is hard to define, because it is a concept that appears in a wide variety of disciplines or areas of study, including art, architecture, music, film, literature, sociology, communications, fashion, and technology.
  2. 3. Baudrillard <ul><li>The condition of hyper-reality, as posited by Jean Baudrillard, leads to a world in which there are no distinctions between the simulacra and that which they simulate: &quot;The new postmodern universe tends to make everything a simulacrum. By this Baudrillard means a world in which all we have are simulations, there being no 'real' external to them, no 'original' that is being copied. There is no longer a realm of the 'real' versus that of 'imitation' or 'mimicry' but rather a level in which there are only simulations.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  3. 4. Art Movements 1960’s Pop Art Andy Warhol: 1962-1973 Minimalism Dan Flavin: Conceptual Art 1968-1986 Marcel Duchamp Feminism 1970-1978 Barbara Kruger
  4. 5. Movements Neo-Conceptualism :1985-1992 Cindy Sherman: 1990’s-now: Video, installations Matthew Barney Cremaster Suite Performance Art: 1968-1991
  5. 6. The late 70’s to the early 80’s: impulses & drives seemed spent. There were no more rules to break. One can do something new for only so long before repetition occurs.
  6. 7. <ul><li>Artist plays with different styles; aesthetics; pastiche all-important Pop Art, Dada, montage. </li></ul><ul><li>Photoshop: photos and video can be altered completely; montage (where's the reality?) Art is consumed by capitalism. </li></ul><ul><li>Art as process, performance, production. Art as recycling of culture authenticated by audience and validated in subcultures sharing identity with the artist. </li></ul><ul><li>Art as copies (Andy Warhol's Factory) Digital media: there is no distinction between an original and a copy </li></ul><ul><li>Play, irony, challenge to official seriousness, subversion of earnestness. </li></ul><ul><li>Hybridity, promiscuous genres, recombinant culture, pastiche. </li></ul>Summary
