Staying on the topic... One can begin to debate things like law enforcement (assuming the law is fair).

What works better in a society:

Punishment for acting bad or reward for acting good?

That sort of talk doesn't work however, and has little to do with the 'inadequate thought processors of now'

The kind of question you could be raising instead is:

Should the lead car be issued a ticket?

I'm not sure if all of the artists mentioned in that article would identify with the word postmodernism. Unless postmodernism is a signifier of a time only. One thing is certain, is that it has a lot to answer for in terms of imagination. If you imagine postmodernism rejecting modernism then I imagine the next movement will have to deal with postmodernism.

The V&A have smeared their thumb over the issue by bracketing po-mo to 1970-1990. I think we are all naturally dealing with and/or rejecting this generations ideas.

This generation is being treated like all other generations. To achieve glorious appreciation the po-po-mo artists must die first.

@ Quinton Baker, no need to die any more; just look at the likes of Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Chapman Bros',Michael Parakowhai etc for non posthumous, post modern prominence.

Being dead hasn't helped Giovanni Intra, Julian Dashper or Johanna Paul much either. I think you might have to give those romantic lenses a bit of a clean.

Dying is the least of our worries. Living in the gutter, now thats romantic. Art isn't about art or artists. It's about investments. I think you might have to give those romantic lenses a bit of a clean. Anyone can buy success? That's the easy bit. Contributing to the evolution of art is the real reward, because art IS the artist's priority and mistress.

This is more about contrast then it is about romance, as it becomes more useful from a distance.

@ Quinton Baker, so dying for art is no problem and brings automatic fame and living recognised artists have bought their success?

You would better understand why it doesn't bother me to say what I mean.
