Summary/Abstract: The grand narrative of the turn from the modern to the postmodern has profoundly shaped Anglo-American thought on art history, literary and film history in the last three decades. The identification of postmodern qualities - contrasted with the canonized modern features - has set the agenda for Ihab Hassan, Fredric Jameson, Brian McHale or even Arthur C. Danto, to name but a few critics. Postmodernism has often been seen as the process whereby modernist high artistic and mass cultural practices are being analyzed, mimicked, and ironized, thus becoming the material of self-conscious artistic preoccupations in different media.
