Hey! That's not at all what it is!

well OK, maybe when it comes to art - but there should also be a huge dose of paying tribute to/stealing from older and contemporary works

so basically it's like obscure pop culture references but classier?

simon666 - 2010-10-01

It's a rejection of the privileging of metaphysics of absence that has largely defined Western culture since Plato introduced his theory of Forms. The idea being that what is "real" or of "value" is not something outside of one's self or the experience that an agent must get to, but rather informed or constituted in the now.

Or to put it even another way: Being weird for the sake of being weird.

I had the video stop loading for a while at :10. That just made it better.

That title is very misleading to a particular group of people.

I know, I came in expecting Stooges being philosophical and was disappointed!

Somewhere there is a terrible manga with the same title as this video. In it we learn that postmodernism is about panties.

Moe Howard, manga and panties ARE post-modern!

Urkel Forever - 2010-10-01

This gives way too much credit to the intellectual merits of postmodernism.

I always thought it was a kind of stripping away of the barriers between so-called "high" and "low" art, but maybe that's wrong

fluffy - 2010-10-02

It's replacing them with entirely new barriers. For every actual piece of art in a modern/postmodern art gallery, you have about 50 people who are just collecting trash from the side of the freeway as some sort of ecological statement, or deconstructing their essence into a representative graph of wishes vs. deeds, or saying "fuck it I'll just rip off DuChamp."

dancingshadow - 2010-10-02

actual piece of art.

oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2010-10-02

define "actual art" for me please

WHO WANTS DESSERT - 2010-10-02

"actual piece of art" laffo

Valkor - 2010-10-02

Guys. Seriously. This is a good and valid joke but it isn't necessarily negative.

You may as well be making complaints that Rodin must have used real people as molds and that his work was too realistic instead of embracing the perfect shadows that lurk at the edges of our reality.

Pink wine can be darn good.

pineapplejuicer - 2010-10-02

i won't argue with your defense of postmodernism, but fuck pink wine
