Postmodernism: Uses of Language in Architecture 3/5
Date: Wednesday 25 May 1977
Venue: Art Net
Critiquing several of the theoretical arguments made by Charles Jencks in his publication The Language of Post-Modern Architecture, the sociologist Conrad Jameson reflects on the social and architectural ramifications of a passage from the modern to the postmodern. Rather than postmodernism, Jameson argues that what the contemporary architectural scene is experiencing should be termed supermodernism.
Introduced by Charles Jencks.
