One thought on “Postmodernism anyone?

  1. CONTEMPORARY WISDOM ASIDE…
    POSTMODERNISM – AN AESTHETIC IMPULSE BROUGHT INTO EFFECT – IN ESSENCE DURING THE DADA PHASE OF CONTEMPORARY ART – THE TREATISE OF DADA BEING WHAT WE SEE NOW AS POST MODERNISM… WE ARE ACTUALLY ENTERING THE PHASE OF POST-POST MODERNISM… IT’S A REVISIONIST TENDENCY TO DO AWAY WITH THE HYPNOTIC TENDENCIES OF THE GRAND NARRATIVE.. BUT DOES NOTHING OF THE SORT… WE ARE TOLD, OFFICIALLY, THAT POST MODERNISM WAS PAN-ARTISTIC CURRENT WHICH CHOSE TO MANIFEST ITSELF AFTER WORLD WAR TWO… IN MY VIEW THE DEVESTATING IMULSES OF THE EARLY 19TH CENTURY INFORMED THE VIEWER OF WHAT WAS TO COME – R.E. MASS EXTINCTION PROCESSES AND AESTHETIC MOVEMENTS…
    DADA, ALBEIT A DEATH KNELL OF ART, SIGNALLED THE DEATH KNELL OF HUMANITY…
    SOMETHING LIKE THAT
    IT’S TAKEN ME SO LONG TO RESPOND DUE TO MY MOVING HOME AND HAVING NO INTERNET CONNECTION THAT I AM GLAD TO INFORM YOU THAT I HAVE BEGUN TO READ THE BOOK THE RISE AND FALL OF COMMUNISM AND SOME DITTY MISSIVE PENNED BY THAT ARCH RED; LIVINGSTON (THE KEN SORT)…
