Post-modernism’s failings

quotesY“…art has all too much of a ‘post’-everything air. May not its intertextuality be the symptom of cultural exhaustion, brought on by the failure to meet the avant-garde challenge of doing something creatively different after the heroic age of experimental modernism? Or might it even be a moral and political failure to engage with the real in society?”

-Christopher Butler, Post-modernism
