'Breaking with the Continuum\r'
'In this paper IÃ¢â¬â¢m sledding to discuss how both modernism and Postmodernism be a paradigm shift in the customs dutyal fraud and cerebration. IÃ¢â¬â¢m going to list the symptomatic gives of these eras, providing relevant evidence, where necessary. In the closing p blind f my paper, IÃ¢â¬â¢m going to investigate the effects contemporaneity and Postmodernism had on the creative process in the wider context. Following the chronology of events, IÃ¢â¬â¢ll discus contemporaneousness head start. The radical nature of this fastidious driving force is noted for all(a) the scholars researching the History of imposture.If we discuss the interpretation of modernity, weÃ¢â¬â¢ll see that it reflects the innovational and experimental nature if it: Ã¢â¬Å"The consideration Modernism use retrospectively to the wide range of experimental and caravan trends in the arts that emerged from the middle of the 19th century, as artists rebelled against impostal Historicism, and later through 20th century as the necessity of an individual rejecting precedent usance, and by creating individual, original techniques. Ã¢â¬Â (HuntFor. com, n/d, para. 1) Indeed, the first and foremost trait feature of Modernism is the rejected tradition.While the majority of previous esthetic developments tried to find a bottom inside the general context of the fastidious realm, Modernism rejected all the previous principles and practices. The very term Ã¢â¬Å"ModernismÃ¢â¬Â implies the dichotomy and struggle between tradition and modernity. In a limited itemize of cases, Ã¢â¬Å"Modernism was not merely defined by its avant garde save also by a reforming trend within previous artistic norms. Ã¢â¬Â (HuntFor. com, n/d, para. 2) In a word, Modernism aimed at rejecting, transforming, or reforming previous artistic experience Ã¢â¬ but nothing goat be left untouched.But what tradition Modernism rejected? Ã¢â¬Å"The minute of arc half of the 19th century has been ca lled the Positivist age. In the visual arts this modernistic or incontrovertible spirit is most obvious in the widespread rejection of Romantic subjectivism and imagination in favor of the credit in the positive consequences of the close observation and the ideal and apparently objective description of the ordinary, observable world. Ã¢â¬Â (HuntFor. com, n/d, para. 3) Another characteristic feature of Modernism is experiment.From my ad hominem steer of view, in the majority of cases Modernism represented experiment for the sake of experiment: Modernists wanted Ã¢â¬Å"to raise forms for no other purpose than novelty. Ã¢â¬Â (Keep, McLaughlin & Parmar, n/d, Ã¢â¬Å" specify Postmodernism,Ã¢â¬Â Ã¢â¬Å"What is postmodernism? Ã¢â¬Â, para. 1) The tension between dispositio and eloqutio was often inflexible in favour of form. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s much easier to pee-pee a revolution in form than in meaning. As for other revolutionary innovations, Ã¢â¬Å"Modernisms cutting edges, t o this point had been the exploration of subjective experience and the clarification and simplification of structure.Ã¢â¬Â (HuntFor. com, n/d, para. 6) By way of all these changes and modifications, art was ascribed a in the raw scat. Modernism Ã¢â¬Å"introduced the increasing number of organizes which either radically simplified or rejected previous practice. Underlying strand of that thinking can be called the shift from idealistic to critical. This movement mirrors that art is to communicate clearly. Ã¢â¬Â (HuntFor. com, n/d, para. 9) Modernism pioneered newfangled forms of artistic expression, offered by rapidly developing technology. Ã¢â¬Å"This feature would in future unite both Modernism and Postmodernism.The rise of cinema and Ã¢â¬Ëmoving picturesÃ¢â¬â¢ in the first decade of the 20th century gave the modern movement an artform which was uniquely its own. The use of photography, which had rendered much of the representational function of visual art obsolete, a lso strongly touched Modernism. Ã¢â¬Â (HuntFor. com, n/d, para. 7) Indeed, Modernism, especially in specific forms, offered an with-it response to the changing reality. Ã¢â¬Å"The pressures of communication, transportation and more rapid scientific development began placing a premium on search for simplification of diction in the work of various art forms.One example was the movement towards clarity, and the bosom of new technology, found in Futurism. Ã¢â¬Â (HuntFor. com, n/d, para. 12) So we can conclude that there were objective preconditions for the rejection of tradition advocated by the representatives of Modernism. When I thought of bringing a relevant example to illustrate how Modernists rejected the tradition, I found out that each movement Ã¢â¬ from De Stijl to Art Deco Ã¢â¬ offered their own response. This again proves the innovative nature of Modernism: while the tradition is singular, the deviations from it are multiple.The situation with Postmodernism isnÃ¢â¬â¢ t that crystal clear. The very term Ã¢â¬Å"PostmodernismÃ¢â¬Â suggests the continuation of modernistsÃ¢â¬â¢ tradition. The theory of Postmodern was first used with regard to computer architecture at the middle of the last century: Ã¢â¬Å"Firstly, postmodernism was a movement in architecture that rejected the modernist, avant garde, anger for the new. Ã¢â¬Â (Keep, McLaughlin & Parmar, n/d, Ã¢â¬Å"Defining Postmodernism,Ã¢â¬Â Ã¢â¬Å"What is postmodernism? Ã¢â¬Â, para. 1) Generally, the movement was born(p) as a rejection of the previous tradition of the adoeation of novelty. The definition of Postmodernism is as follows:Ã¢â¬Å"[Postmodernism is a] rejection of the sovereign autonomous individual with an focus upon anarchic collective, anon. experience. Collage, diversity, the mystically unrepresentable, Dionysian fad are the foci of attention. Most importantly we see the decomposition of distinctions, the merging of subject and object, self and other. This is a bi ting playful parody of western modernity and the Ã¢â¬Ë rump WayneÃ¢â¬â¢ individual and a radical, anarchist rejection of all attempts to define, regard or re-present the human subject. Ã¢â¬Â (Keep, McLaughlin & Parmar, n/d, Ã¢â¬Å"Defining Postmodernism,Ã¢â¬Â Ã¢â¬Å"What is postmodernism? Ã¢â¬Â, para. 5)We see that Postmodernism rejects not only the previous tradition of Modernism, but also all the previous artistic tradition. It focuses on a different meaning and method acting of creation. Assuming that no new knowledge can have been produced at the end of the 20th century, Postmodernism gruelling on synthesizing the available element of art and thought. Postmodernism is a paradigm shift that canÃ¢â¬â¢t withal be defined by comparison with the artistic method that will chronologically follow it. As for the meaning of these two innovative trends, Modernism exposed a new era in the western sandwich art at the beginning of the 20th century.It unfastened way for con stant experimentation and search for new forms of artistic expression. Postmodernism with its stress on collective and anonymous experience changed the nature of relations between the writer and artistic product. Both trends offered a highly mandatory response to the rapidly changing world. References Modernism. HuntFor. com.
