Post Modernism

All the people mentioned above are closely recognised with modernism creating pieces of work that will in years to come still be recognised.
Post Modernism is a movement away from modernism and they want the audience to be conciously aware that they are watching a text. There are two ways of doing this:
  • Technical - camera focusing
  • Intertextuality - illusions
The following three things all make you aware of other texts (allusions).

Intertextuality - making reference to another text. For example, in Lady Gaga's video for telephone they make reference to Kill Bill.

Parody - mocking the original text e.g Scary Movie

Hommage - celebrating the original text
