Postmodernism is an era which follows modernism (post means after in latin). There is postmodern culture in every aspect of life: art, literature, philosophy, architecture, fiction, economics, etc. It's not only an art movement.One of the most well-known postmodernist concerns is "deconstruction." It means about that there is nothing besides what you see. There is no such thing as outside-the-text. What follows from that is that art (for example paintings) doesn't have to depict anything, since it's only art, only a painting, it represents itself, nothing from outside itself.
