Can you please tell me what this means?I don't understand it at all. Thank you for your help. I hate this type of literature.
Modernism is that if everything is based on perception, then history is false; therefore the society emerges from that history is also false. The purpose of modernistic art is to save us from the deadening features of everyday life, especially the desensitizing elements in urban, industrial society. Modernists believe that the central issue of life is that we do exist, but that things have no meaning for us, unless we interact with them. We create meaning.
