Charles Jencks Postmodernism And The New Synthesis-clip_1121

Charles Jencks discusses postmodern classicism by comparing the semantic qualities of the movement with the classical Greek orders. He describes the use of the same object to symbolize different things, while also containing a redundancy of signs and associations. He also describes the necessity of primitiveness and how mass culture turning classicism into kitsch propelled the postmodern movement.
