Day 7 #moreфон2020 #moreфон_italki What do I love and hate at the same time? It’s postmodern. What is that? This is a condition of the contemporary world and culture. Its features we can see in movies, art, literature and everywhere. The main rule of postmodern in art sounds like “there is no high and low art, everything can exist and be used and mixed”. Would you like to see an example of postmodern art? Harry Potter. But not the classical Harry Potter, don’t worry. I mean a project that was been making for 5 years, and the idea of it is very easy: the authors took “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone” and replaced all magic by… weapons”. Yeah, you’ve read correctly. No magic, only weapons. WHY?!1111 The creators said the project had started like a joke (the joke was lasting for 5 years! a perfect sense of humour!). It was made because why not? Nowadays everyone can be an artist, and if you have some idea you can come true. And I imagine the appearance’s moment of this idea: - Listen, we’ve achieved everything that we wanted, let’s change Harry Potter. - ? - We need to replace all magic by weapons, of course! - You’re a genius! Okay. Why do I hate postmodern? It destroys all values of life. It makes me feel that everything is relative. Postmodern tells me: now you’re out of culture, you don’t have history, you’re in the cycle of meanings; choose what you like and play. Okay. Why do I love postmodern? It destroys all values of life.
