Modern Art Revival

New Modernist

Modern art revisited and perhaps required.

Let’s say 1850 to 1950 for the sake of symmetry and brevity and let others theorize, for now, about conception and inkling of conception along with the details of the enlightenment on one end and the various trailing edge influences after 1950 to the present on the other. Let us also accept, for the time being at least, that the birth of Alice Pleasance Liddell in 1852 and the first hand written gift of Alice’s Adventure Under Ground in 1864 stand as a first gate post, a small distance prior to the “first great war,” for the modern art being revisited here.  More here. Now the beginning of the end of modernism can be marked with a second gate post by that other adventuring, blue dress wearing girl Dorothy Gale over the rainbow in Oz. Though written and published near the time of Alice in wonderland (under land) its film adaptation in 1939 marked the beginning of the end of modern art as the term is taken to mean herein. More on Alice and Dorothy later. Modernism was a perfect fit for growing anti imperial, pro democratic sentiment before, during and after, the first great war.

New modern, modernist art revival

Snowden’s  NSA “disclosures have fuelled debates over mass surveillancegovernment secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy.” Perhaps they will lead to policy reform and more government oversight as though some actual democratic process had begun. Has a democratic process begun? Is there a lesser democratic evil?

Glenn Greenwald told Brent Bambury, host of CBC Radio’s Day 6.

“There are many, many, many more significant documents about Canadian surveillance and partnership with the NSA that will be reported and, I think, will be quite enlightening for the people of Canada.”
 
Is Canada a democratic country?
Is there a need for a new modern, (modernist) art revival capable of articulating what major media outlets will not?
