Problem

Dismissal of past cultural achievements

Other Names:
Pursuit of novelty in art
Anti-cultural futurism
Post-modern ideology
Nature:
With every generation of artists arrives the potential for new artistic exploration. The meaning of artistic freedom, however, may be misconstrued as an invitation to denounce past cultural achievements. Dismissal of artistic tradition in pursuit of novelty suggests that art must merely be new in order to have value. This philosophy alters the meaning of cultural achievement to the notion that an artist's work is an end in itself, without connection to the past or responsibility for the future. As such, culture could become a matter of the inner life of the artist and not of the world the artist lives in.
