One more indication that creativity is in decline, the masculine spirit having been reduced to an emblem and institutionalization creating a self-referential solipsistic world of walled in spirits who, having to access to anything real, begin simulating the simulacrum (Baudrillard).

I noticed this years ago. In music, all the genres are synthesizing together. There's no creativity or originality anymore. There's just one remix after the next.

Techno has a lot to do with it. People just digitize sounds rather than analogously appreciating how music is harmonized.

An illustration of the anti-reality psychological movement of modernity.

The world reduced to an abstraction; simplified down to a line, a shape, a colour; chaotic, a jumbled simplistic mess pretending to be something it is not: art of the talentless, for the infantile, the technologically literate.
The Nihilism of modernity and its method of debasing the human brain, also offering it a detached relief from a world most cannot bear, is represented in art.

This reduction, debasement, also offers the illusion of parity, since all can draw lines using different colours but only a very few have the talent to paint, or to sculpt, or to craft a melody that bridges the distance between the noumenon and the phenomenon and offers us beauty.
Art has reached a point where an ape, or an elephant, or a child, can paint something to be purchased as "high" art.
Take Pollack, as an example of "f-art", as I call it - art for the base, pretentiously trying to imitate what they cannot be.
A splashing about of colours, daring the observer to contradict the established, educated, experts, "authorities," by calling it crap.
Art to escape the real, and not to represent it, to engage it, to approach it.

Similarly in what is now called "philosophy" we find the same debasement - the reduction of concepts to word-play, emotional appeals, detachment from reality; cynical evasion, pretentious indifference, mockery.
Even an infant, drunk on emotion can pretend to be a rational mind.

The thinker now no more than an ape flinging words, like an elephant flings colour on a canvas, and calling it metaphysical, to hide its lack of content, and of any reference in the aesthetic.

The modern mind is best represented by modern pop-music, with its erotic obsessions, it sampling, its lack of creativity, its shallow lyrics, and simplistic melodies...and its constant repetition of emotional appeals as an attempt to appear deep and thoughtful.
Art for the masses...parity in ugliness.

The repetition of the past - recycled and fragmented so that the illusion of "progress" can be maintained.

Then you have the cry of the mediocre:"It's a matter of taste" appealing to perspectivism to hide their simplicity...beauty in the "eye of the beholder" - cultural relativism which can be applied to anything that troubles the modern mind with its hierarchies of superior/inferior.

The entire series is worth seeing.
Very good find There Will Be Blood. We need more of this.







Modern art is a reflection of the level we've fallen to.
The ugly, the orgiastic, the base, is raised in value so that the majority can cope with their own condition(ing). The stupid, the ugly, the pretentious marketed and sold as something divine and mysteriously inspiring - sold to those desperate to appear as valuable themselves.
Everything is allusion, detachment, a silent agreement to pretend so that we are not also exposed - peer pressure manufactured through mass marketing, repetition, and the psychology of the masses (Gustave, LeBon) (herd psychology - Nietzsche, Friedrich).

Is not the self denounced as evil, as primitive, amongst the moderns?
Those who have so little of self, and even less to feel proud about, are the first to denounce it as primitive, and something to be overcome.

Do not these modern nihilists, pretending to be philosophers, do exactly the same thing when they rip a concept like love, self, fear, from its natural position, and abstract it into an abstraction we must all agree is divine, yet are unable to define?
Not too long ago I was confronted by one of those pseudo-intellectual simpletons who had the audacity to claim that sex had nothing to do with copulation...eradicating the beauty of the act, its necessity, its primal energies...turning it into another meaningless term we are all supposed to pretend we find inspirational, when it is meaningless as it is presented.

Like a canvas of paint, with no shapes, no connection to anything real...something a child would imagine.

What is art?

Art is the cry of a people saying, "We are here, we are living in this world and grappling with it just like you."

It is a subjectively biased interpretation of something - whether that something is an event, a place, a person, or a thing, is irrelevant. It's the bias that makes it interesting.

Many years ago Meyer Schapiro argued that there was a radical difference between art's spiritual value and its commercial value. He warned against the nihilistic effect of collapsing their difference.

In this day and age, the country an artist comes from is just as important economically as is artistically, maybe even more so.  For today, the credibility of the artist is connected to the credibility of his/her country.

Today's China is home to some of the most breathtaking innovations in contemporary art.

http://www.policymic.com/articles/76347/these-beautiful-images-will-change-everything-you-think-about-modern-china

Despite all this, to turn one's back and face the past, without giving recognition to the present, denies one's totality, the past the present.

,,PARTY ANIMALISM'' AS A MODULE OF SPIRITUAL FIXATION AND THE SUSTAINMENT OF SOCIAL MEDIOCRITY

By Coriolanus

"Since the anti -cultural movement`s entourage in the sixties on the course of Cultural distortion which served as the initial step towards the deconstruction of the western Christian value core, and replacing it with light motifs like promiscuity, consumption of drugs as a regular supplement in life generally, we have been witnesses of the gradual degeneration of the culture of living with every successive generation.

Life has been valued by the rapidity of ones action`s, the scourging of time with wasteful activities like partying, mass festivals which serve as the congregational points for the lowest characters, who through their self destructive behavior manifest the sterility of life in postmodern society, the total absence of a vital system of paradigms which creates a void which chains the urge to develop and cultivate the personal aspects of the individual- The physical,intellectual, social and the precondition of every undertaking in ones life, the Spiritual growth.

I don`t want to be falsely perceived as a passive nihilist rejecting every form of celebrating life or essential moments of individual or collective joy, and because of that i want to give an short introspective about the Etyology of festivities in past cultures or contemporary ones which maintained their vitality.

A festival is a special occasion of feasting or celebration, usually with a religious focus. Aside from religion, and sometimes folklore, another significant origin is agricultural. Food (and consequently agriculture) is so vital that many festivals were associated with harvest time. Religious commemoration and thanksgiving for good harvests are blended in events that take place in autumn such as Halloween in the northern hemisphere and Easter in the southern.

In Ancient Greece and Rome, festivals such as Saturnalia were closely associated with social organisation and political processes as well as religion.

We can conclude that festivals were the manifestation of validity and glorification of an essential economical, political or religious events which were either cyclical in chronological occurrence, or were a commemoration of a crucial event in a given culture.
Many of the festivities are still taking place in Western culture, but in a way which is nothing more than a mere formal procedure, which i believe is the lacking of will of the Western Culture to totally detach from its Traditions. Active participation is minimal while the presence of the being when the spiritual rejuvenation is coming as a natural result positively altering the state of the being, is absent. It can only seen as a visual depiction in the art from the particular period when the vitality of the culture had the capacity to breath life in the public gatherings, which without a cultural organic infrastructure as we are about to see, are nothing more than a crowd assembled without a purpose, an organised masquarade which even negates the thing it is meant to glorify.

Today`s festivals which absorb the being and attract the attention of the masses, are the musical festivals which are organized in many countries around Europe and are visited on a massive scale with audience from around the world, the majority of whom come from Europe.
The object of celebration here, is something i will from now on call
,,The impotent Dionysus''.

The wild partying in this congregations objectifies itself, in the relation of Celebration-object-celebration=perpetual repetition.
This means that the participants, which are highly alienated from their cultures values, spiritual creed and way of life, are there just for the sake of being there.

There is a pure will to be a part of something more, to imitate an organic community, but the same will does not posses the necessary frames to realize itself in an community, so it ravages on the beats of the degenerated music, moves in an manner without tact, rhythm or direction, acting in the manner a ravaged dog does when the master removes its collar.
The intoxication with drugs which are a dogma in the congregations of this kind, only contributes to the anesthesys, and so in dependence of the lasting of the festival, a closed circle consisting of dance, orgies and drugs takes place. This is the cry of a culture it lost its course, and the cultural distorter`s in the elites fuel this berserking with media bombardment, concepts on how to spend your ,,free'' time and enrich your experience while on the other hand, Religious life is represented as a remnant of the past, a bigotry and repulsive validation of the ,,Oppressive Patriarchy'' from which Modern society has to clean itself.
The cycle however, does not end here. There is a next festival, there is the going out for the weekends, the vicious circle of time wasting, the concept of the Party animal, where life is validated through the screeches of the DJ and the mesmerizing effects of the Ecstasy pill..."

The shift from auditory to the visual… this is going to have a long reaching effect, pros and cons,, but I think more cons.
