Which is more postmodern?
"The painter is in principle that only fully independent producer, who as a rule needs no further intermediation to realize a work of art." (p.94)
"Television, which was so decisive in the passage to a new epoch, has no modernist past. It became the most powerful medium of all in the postmodern period itself." (p.122)
"The arrival of novel kinds of connexion and simulation will tend unify rather than divide the urban centers of coming century, even across vast differences in average incomes. So long as the system of capital prevails, each new advance in the industry of images increases the radius of the postmodern." (p.123)
I feel like the television business (commercials and media corporations) is the anti postmodern, but seinfeld, the office, etc are the definition of postmodern. Everywhere I see contradictions, yet they all seem to make sense, kinda... Thoughts???
