Michelangelo Pistoletto // Venus of the rags
During Postmodernism, Modern era positive values have been replaced by a critical consciousness which destroyed the “modern project (of universality)” to reach a systematic deconstruction of the whole amount of previous period certainties.
Now, the work of art feeds itself with a more structured and diversified reality and gives back a self interpretation that is not univocal and, especially, is not based on a unique level of experience (the visual one). It requires a mix of elements (visual, verbal, conceptual) that have to be considered as one to get a fulfilled experience.
