Hello everyone. I'm doing my paper on the following question: "How can photography be thought of as a postmodern medium? Your discussion should define and discuss various strategies used by 3 photographic artists working post 1960." I did a lot of reading concerning this subject bit still a bit lost how I should organize my essay to fully answer this question. This is the concise plan of my essay: (Do you think I'm going into right direction?) 1. History of that time. (End of war, end of colonianism, the rise of mass media and technology. etc). 2. At the same time demise of Modernism and rise of Postmodernism. 3. Photography appered to be a watershed between Modernism and Postmodernism. 4. In modernism ph was treated as a tool for representation, as a medium to document while in postmodernism it became central. (here I plan to write that ph. couldn't be central because it contradicted with modernist's idea of art practice that should be autonomous, because ph. participated in so many other different practices. However, postmodernist artists sterted using ph as a medium for making art like Rauschenberg, Warhol did etc.) 5. It also became postmodern because ph. embraced all the postmodern ideas: appropriation, banalty, humour - parody, irony, playfullness, self-reference etc. I chose to discuss the following three artists like: Cindy Sherman, Diana Arbus and Sherry Levine and their strategies. What do you think, guys? Any more ideas why ph is a postmodern medium?
