Overview[ edit ] The Post-Impressionists were dissatisfied with what they felt was the triviality of subject matter and the loss of structure in Impressionist paintings, though they did not agree on the way forward. Georges Seurat and his followers concerned themselves with Pointillismthe systematic use of tiny dots of colour. The Impressionist Camille Pissarro experimented with Neo-Impressionist ideas between the mids and the early s. Discontented with what he referred to as romantic Impressionism, he investigated Pointillismwhich he called scientific Impressionism, before returning to a purer Impressionism in the last decade of his life.
The basic features of what we now call postmodernism can be found as early as the s, most notably in the work of Jorge Luis Borges.
Salient features of postmodernism are normally thought to include the ironic play with styles, citations and narrative levels,  a metaphysical skepticism or nihilism towards a " grand narrative " of Western culture,  a preference for the virtual at the expense of the real or more accurately, a fundamental questioning of what 'the real' constitutes  and a "waning of affect"  on the part of the subject, who is caught up in the free interplay of virtual, endlessly reproducible signs inducing a state of consciousness similar to schizophrenia.
Definitions[ edit ] Consensus on what constitutes an era can not be easily achieved while that era is still in its early stages. However, a common theme of current attempts to define post-postmodernism is emerging as one where faith, trust, dialogue, performance, and sincerity can work to transcend postmodern irony.

Gans associates postmodernism closely with "victimary thinking," which he defines as being based on a non-negotiable ethical opposition between perpetrators and victims arising out of the experience of Auschwitz and Hiroshima. In Gans's view, the ethics of postmodernism is derived from identifying with the peripheral victim and disdaining the utopian center occupied by the perpetrator.
Postmodernism in this sense is marked by a victimary politics that is productive in its opposition to modernist utopianism and totalitarianism but unproductive in its resentment of capitalism and liberal democracy, which he sees as the long-term agents of global reconciliation.
In contrast to postmodernism, post-millennialism is distinguished by the rejection of victimary thinking and a turn to "non-victimary dialogue"  that will "diminish […] the amount of resentment in the world.
The net result of this media-induced shallowness and instantaneous participation in trivial events is a "silent autism" superseding "the neurosis of modernism and the narcissism of postmodernism.

Vermeulen and van den Akker's metamodernism[ edit ] In the cultural theorists Timotheus Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker introduced the term metamodernism  as an intervention in the post-postmodernism debate. In their article 'Notes on metamodernism' they assert that the s are characterized by the emergence of a sensibility that oscillates between, and must be situated beyond, modern positions and postmodern strategies.
As examples of the metamodern sensibility Vermeulen and van den Akker cite the 'informed naivety', 'pragmatic idealism' and 'moderate fanaticism' of the various cultural responses to, among others, climate change, the financial crisis, and geo political instability.
