Hey, everyone!

So, here's what I call my "Postmodern" collection. The featured authors may ask: "Why the hell I'm I included in there?" and I'll answer: "Good question, my friend!"... Haha! I'm just digressing, but seriously, here's the motivation:

    Many people has tried to define what posmodernism is. They have tried to characterized it by comparing it with modernism ,by linking it with society, politics, art (l'art pour l'art and stuff), economics or just culture in grosso modo.

    After reading lots of stuff about this subject from the perspective of philosophy, literature and aesthetics (Benjamin, Marcuse, Adorno & Horkheimer, Eco, Jauss, Huyssen and those guys) I've come to some sort of idea. Rather than try to explain it with words, I'll risk to establish my point by just showing my collection.

    You see, when I picked this particular images, I thought that they must reflect a contradictory series of emotions and knowledge, all linked by desperation, cinicism, the absurd and a teeny tiny drop of hope in foture: for example, the masks which most of people think are necessary to survive in society, the contemplation of pain in other people and the silence about it; the pleasure in cruelty combined with the sensitivity of the little details, the hi-tech and the crescent loneliness, the quationable role of humans in the ontologycal cathegory of existence... you know what I mean? All the things that surround us, the very world we live in and which we need ('cause it's a need, not just a wish) to express, to pervert, to twist, to reinvent my our own means.
     Anyway, I hope that this may mean anything to anyone (such a wish is so postmodern itself... gee...) and, of course, by doing this I also want to pay my respects and adnirations for all these authors.

Cheers and stay tune!

Very interesting thoughts and a great collection to illustrate!! Thanks for including me :blowkiss: My observation on your collection - most are shades of gray and the colors are all very grungy...not too much "light and happiness" in post modern :giggle:
