Is it possible that various disciplines, theorists and cultural commentators have been hurtling down a blind alley in the last thirty years, searching for the holy grail of the postmodern? What if, after all, we have never have been postmodern? Or what if we are, instead, now living 'after postmodernity'? As global culture rushes off the cliff of catastrophe with its neo-liberal, neo-conservative ideologies mangled in the process, this book provides theory at the speed of light designed to capture the fast flickering images of the real, gone before you can blink in today's accelerated culture.Kevin Cummins has also drawn on a version of Pop for his aesthetic outlook but contemporary art for its production and ... music in 2009 (Cummins 2009) and a complete black and white retrospective on Joy Division in 2010 (Cummins 2010).
