somehow it all makes sense

Post Modernism
Developed from critiques of architectural Modernism of the 1970s. By the 1980s visual art which criticised society was also being refered to as Post  Modernism.
Post Modernism is effectively a late Modernism and is considered to be less formal and more playful in style.
Parody of earlier styles is a dominant Post Modern trait. Also art is valued for being imperfect, low brow, accessible, disposable, local and temporary, conceptual, minimal and sensational.

Key artists include: Jeff Koons, Marcell Duchamp, Andy Warhol, Sol Lewitt, Donald Judd, Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin.
