Art History Unstuffed. Postmodernism and the Meaning of Art

THEORIES OF THE POSTMODERN

Part Six of a Six Part series on Theories of the Postmodern, Postmodernism and the Meaning of Art was posted on March 14, 2014. This post examines the state of a “work of art” once it is de-defined as “work” and is redefined as “text.”

All meanings in literature are plural, and the ultimate (non)conclusion is (never)completed by the audience and/or the reader.  The “work” is no longer a “work,” but is a “text.”
