Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

The rules of what will have been done

with 2 comments

Jean-François Lyotard

[Postmodernism] denies itself the solace of good forms…A postmodern artist or writer is in the position of a philosopher: the text he writes, the work he produces are not in principle governed by preestablished rules, and they cannot be judged according to a determining judgment, by applying familiar categories to the text or to the work. Those rules and categories are what the work of art itself is looking for. The artist and the writer, then, are working without rules in order to formulate the rules of what will have been done.
