In class today we discussed Modernism and Postmodernism and how the two refer to different views on how we interpret the world around us.
Modernism came about during the beginning of the industrialization and urbanization of society particularly in the west. Modernism was and still is all about creating perfectionist work. Modernist had a special way of thinking, they believed in utopia, the idea that there could be a perfection society Postmodernism began to emerge in the 1960s after WWII and continues to grow today. Postmodernism embraced everything from decorative art to abstract art. It put a high emphasis on conceptual thinking and how you go about elements of design. Postmodernism also paved the way for artist to think outside the box in the design process. Post modernists are more concerned with the concept of the art rather than the skill level demonstrated in the art itself; they believe in good concepts rather the pure perfection as in modernist.
