Notes from The Heart House

Brainy single-payer blog testing the waters on business, media, art and culture with the occasional critical theory slant.

A) Postmodern Art

Postmodern art is “post” because it is made with an awareness that the phenomena around us is artificially constructed. So it is always questioning assumptions and things that we take for granted. But I personally question whether the visual arts is any longer the right vehicle for such a response to life. We must take into account that originally, visual art was an accomplice, a part of the grander narrative of all that is to be taken as solid fact. Now that art has been exposed, it is lifeless.
