What comes after postmodern?

Beth Gilmore


What comes after postmodern?

What comes after Post Modern? There have been many art movements and
periods throughout time. What will the people and artists of the
future call our current period? There is a quote which I need to look
up the name of who said it.. i really hope someone said it and im not just imagining things again… culture is like water, fish are in water
like we are in culture. Do fish know that they are in water? Do we
know we are in culture? What are the cultural markers that will define
us as a people to those in the future who will study us? Are landfills
the archeological goldmines of the future?


The future is already here - it is just unevenly distributed. William Gibson

The past isn’t dead. It isn’t even past. William Faulkner

In medias res: we enter in the middle of the story. Post-modernism is still going on from what has been told in the casual survey that I’ve been conducting in the hallways here at school and also online through various social media outlets. I have found many different answers. Many agree that we are not past post modernism at all but still immersed in it under the guise of several names. what do you think?
