Fragmentation and Postmodernism I

Fragmentation is an important aspect of Postmodernism. A whole and entire phenomenon on its own, the postmodernist movement began in the field of architecture but spread to art, literature, cinema, culture and philosophy in no time. According to writer James Morley, postmodernism seeks to maintain elements of modern utility while returning to classical forms of the past. He describes it as an “ironic brick-a-brack or collage approach to construction that combines several tradition styles into one structure.” In fields of postmodern artwork, fragmentation signifies the breaking rather than building up of information, to form a structure that would convey a hidden message rather than the obvious message to its audience.” ~ Classic Literature Examiner Adya Sinha
