Moderate are for suckers/parasites who don't know which boat to take. They normally just survive longer however.
The embrace of bleakness and grey in art points to the decay of 'creativity' and 'imagination' as was perviously known as. This embrace of new idea/concept IS creativity in a way, but now art has become a tool of public opinion and individual expression rather than the escapism that it used to be.
Possibly just a change of phase and era. Possibly will pass too. But for now, art is as politics. To rule. To influence. To impress. To capture attention.
Is it a good thing?
I sound too post-modernist for my own liking, but I have to say tat it is neither a good thing nor a bad thing - just a shift of a page - inevitable. After all, what is right and wrong?
WHO KNOWS THE TRUTH AFTER ALL?
