Postmodernism uite like times we live in pretty much calls to mind the old idiom “it was like a train wreck you didn’t want to stare but you couldn’t bare to look away”This nifty intro isn’t a slog by any means in fact it’s incredibly illuminating I’d even go as far as saying that every thinking person specifically those embarking on any length of study in the arts should read this book It might just save you endless hours of confusion Ps Derrida was nowhere near as wanky as he was made out to be during my undergrad

I've heard said that styles recycle themselves and to a degree there's truth in it In the realm of ideas art architecture fashion musicI think there's evidence one example my young friends are often obsessed with the eighties which seems strange to me having lived through them And there's a whole slew of bands who sound like they're trying to get back there via technologized whining a substance that can apparently be recorded distilled teased andor feathered and used for time travelBut when modern is used to describe both the here and now as well as classic styles that seem perennially modern what can we use to describe something that rejects modernism transcends it or somehow results from it Postmodern Though its meanings are many and always a little beyond graspWhat this book does is introduce some of the key players and events that fall loosely into the form of postmodernism They offer something of a timeline In 1939 conceptual artist Daniel Buren created an exhibit with no art Or invisible art Or whatever you'd like to call it The walls were bare That is where the book starts And then it goes back in time to discuss the idea of modernism and modern ness And then returns to Picasso photography and the crisis of representation Once painting was no longer needed to catalog time and place and event painters ventured into new territory trying to get past or through or underneath the image somewhere beyond it In a way the arrival of photographs challenged artists to find new meaning in representational work and as a result perhaps it shifted dissolved and re choreographed the relationship between artist and the art object Here we hear briefly from Walter Benjamin someone I've always been fascinated by and Lyotard and arrive at the uestion not just what can be represented but what can't be represented through representation of a thing and of not a thing uestions of art and the sublime Where thingness ends and begins and experience of art too And how much if at all art should have anything to do with life Something next about Machine Aesthetic Optimism and architecture that we apparently thought we would like but instead we don't like because it's perhaps about function than formThenConstructivismStalinist Totalitarianism DADAWarhol Duchamp The artist makes the art or the art makes the artist The simulacrum and uestions about borders between art and reality And apparently that's the end of part 1 Now for part 2 A genealogy of postmodern theory and linguistic theory semiology structuralism structural anthropology Claude Levi Strauss post structuralism Roland Barthes the death of the author deconstruction and so we have Derrida and differanceStructures of power and knowledge Foucault power as narrative not something we have but something we liveAnd finally a female bodied person in this book who isn't the subject of a work of art Luce Irigaray and Julia Kristeva and an address of postmodern feminism Lacan the fiction of the self There's even Some mention of WWII though I would think not uite enough about the effects of the war on theorists and theory not much mention of folks of the Frankfurt school aside from a brief mention of Benjamin and a uote from Adorno By part 3 we get into cyberspace and the uestionable future of physical reality Some interesting stuff in there It is a this point it starts to feel a bit dated and probably of it is dated except that I studied all this stuff in the 90s when it was first published so really it's just a nice though at times overly u
