Postmodernism and its resentment
Author(s): J. G. Ravi Kumar
Abstract: Often people refer to some features associated with post-modernism in the arts, including theatre and literature, but also architecture. A considerable source of confusion is that the terms pair of concepts in philosophy social science. Modernism in the arts, with its rejection of the idea of representation and the emphasis on challenge and unfamiliar (e.g, Picasso), is actually in some affinity with postmodern philosophy. Nevertheless, the postmodern idea between different spheres- such as high culture and low (mass) culture- and the break with elite ideas of a specific space and function of art make it possible point at some overall features of postmodernism as an overall label which seem to work broadly, in adversity of fields.
