POSTMODERNISM AND LITERATURE

Postmodern literature such as Molloy, Malone dies, the unnamable, creates a new postmodern genre for us. This looks at characters that lives come together but they realise they are the fictional beliefs of someone else anyway. This can be seen as postmodern through the virtual reality in which the characters live in in which they believe is real.

Postmodern art is a term we use to explain the movement with art from modernism. It is argued that postmodern art is a huge contradiction to mordernism, the main term we use to do with postmodern art is bricolage, this is the visual arts and literature which can refer to the construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things which happen to be available. Art work such as Pop Art is considered to be postmodern art with artists such as Andy Warhol, Claus Oldenburg and Roy lichenstein. The term Pop Art was created to describe paintings that celebrated consumerism.
