Po PoMo : the post postmodern condition
Hartness, Paula B.
Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2009.; Includes bibliographical references. Over the past twenty years, Postmodernism has become an aggrandized version of itself. This paper posits that the artworld has shifted into a new movement that can no longer be defined clearly as Postmodernism and perhaps the best term for such a movement might be Post Postmodernism, or Po PoMo. While there is no definite delineation from Postmodernism to Po PoMo there are distinctions that set this new art movement apart from Postmodernism, which include the rise of art as commodity and artist stars, a focus on galleries, globalization and an increased dissemination of information, a focus on intermedial artistic practices, the overwhelming meta-mentality of artists, and a remergence of traditional painting and photography.
