Re: Defining "post-modernism" -- WAS--- First define "post-modern"photography, dammit
Unfortunately that's not how they teach in art schools. There these terms are all important.

Aren't these labels, especially the ones based on time rather than appearance or technique, all marketing? What artist called him/ herself "modern" or "post modern," whereas such labels were used extensively by critics, agents, gallery salespeople, and the like. I find the term "post modern" meaningless. There's no common style or subject matter shared by all "post modernists." This can't possibly be of concern to artists when making art.
