Anne Sexon

The postmodern world of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century (and the art created in it) reflected on previous styles and eras and challenged almost everything that came before it. Consider the different criticisms and challenges postmodern artists and thinkers raised with reference to the art and ideas of previous generations.

In your initial post, select a work of art in any form (visual art, literature, music, performance) from the postmodern era. What ideas, beliefs, or perceptions does that work ask us to question?

Ensure that your chosen piece was created in this period. It should not be merely a depiction of something in this time period.
