The Postmodern Aesthetic — Jonas Wood vs. Günter Förg

Jungle Kitchen, Jonas Wood

If postmodern art is the normal art of revolutionary Modernism, then you’re going to have a hard time finding two better representatives of this aesthetic than Jonas Wood and Günter Förg. The difference is that Wood demonstrates considerable skill and imaginative use of Modernism in his work, while Förg can best be described as an unskilled practitioner of minimal effortism.
