Hallmarks of PostmodernismTo begin with you must first address what is modernism. Modernity dealt with concepts of new materials, society and the future- pre World War One art often deals with this in a positive manner. Postmodern art begins to appear in the late 1940's with the end of the Second World War. WWII and the atomic bomb, helped changed the course of art. Postmodern art is self-aware, self-referencial, with often include meta-narratives and deconstruction of social or political ideas and ideals. Due to its very nature postmodernism is difficult to define as it is not specific style, rather a hierarchcy of ideas and concepts.
