On Monday, the Vision of our Future talked about making a movement in a day. We decided to do it quickly - a difficult process that yielded many conversations. The audio is an excerpt of a discussion on making an art movement called “Post-Art”.
Is the feeling of being afraid - of stepping into the abyss - a symptom of the period that follows postmodernism?
or, are our fears a sign that we have left the cave of irony and ‘anything goes’ mentality into a place where we must articulate our dreams, values, and actions?
Is ‘Sincerity’ the path to follow?
