Pad.ma - Abbas Baydoun - Culture and Arts: Re: The Actual
About the lecture:We pass, along with the rest of the world, on to a post-modernity, silently, with no preliminaries and as if divorced from the cultural; a mere development, direct, literal and technical.In these parts modernity carries a load of theoretical and intellectual pronouncements for us. It started as a project for change, albeit unclear. At that time, it seemed that modernity was not a historical process, but rather a value in itself, actually by mere faith, in itself an instigator of social transformation and not their result. Modernity was held as a private myth and a contemporary religion, while the transition to a post-modernity remains on the other hand unfounded in that which precedes it. It is a leap, unconnected to a cultural memory. One can say that the frustration of modernity returns. Yet, the philosophical preliminaries to post-modernity loom as more difficult. For the difficulty lies in finding an intellectual project for post-modernity; in finding a culture of post-modernity that is not simply an array of disconnected domains, techniques, and artistic manifestations which would constitute a situation that is contrary to the principle of post-modernity.About Abbas Baydoun:
