Self reflective and Self aware - Postmodernism

  1. 1. TODAYS DEFINITION “For Linda Hutcheon, the postmodern is much more an artistic style, recognisable by its self reflexivity and irony, especially in its relations to the practices and objects of the surrounding culture and the cultural past. Postmodern work often takes the form of parody, which has a highly divided and ambivalent relation to its objects of imitation” - M Fortier
  2. 2. PRACTICES Ways of doing things  Traditional narratives in film  Character Types  Codes and Conventions  Technical practices  Props, costumes etc A self reflective text will challenge these ways of doing things
  3. 3. POSTMODERN SELF-AWARENESS Texts are self-aware – it mentions itself, questions itself, it says what it is… The boundary between audience and text is broken Postmodern is METATEXTUAL
  4. 4. SURROUNDING CULTURE Acknowledging the social/culture background in which the text is produced Often making ‘fun’ of that context http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GvVDHruEPQ Can make serious comment on the issues in society http://seekcartoon.com/watch/27324-the-simpsons-season-16-episode-10-theressomething-about-marrying.html#.Uwnv9mtFBdg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR4yQFZK9YM Talks about current issues http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L2fsubA2-c
  5. 5. CULTURAL PAST Human history http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVmdCAT7Rc8 Past texts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-eazu7FQEg Can be critical of itself and its form http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvEXudbFhWU
  6. 6. DRAWS ATTENTION TO THE CONSTRUCTED NATURE OF THE TEXT Direct Address to camera http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NF7wckdzHXY Seeing the means of construction (cameras, obtuse editing, jump cuts,) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_NpFX6OaJg Characters drawing attention to plot holes Scream excerpt from 52:31 Referencing the media itself – The Simpsons and Fox Network, Use of ‘CNN’ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/04/the-simpsons-skewers-cable-newsprint-media-video_n_4211143.html
  7. 7. YOUR TASK • Create a powerpoint using clips or images the internet • Find another example for each point in the slide show that is in orange. • Then next to or underneath it, explain how it is self-reflective or self-aware in this way…
