Continuing a set of vague and unspecific wanderings, where I try to form a sense of what metamodernism is in practice, this week’s episode is a mash-up of collected of extracts taken from videos discussing metamodernism on YouTube. Various people talk about metamodernism, and discuss where the concept has come from as a concept, and how metamodernism is being defined against legacy forms of thinking and understanding – modernism and postmodernity. I’ve taken the experts and arranged them in a mash-up, along with some music. I was planning to try to explain and contextualise them, but then I felt that they would be better if they just unfolded and listeners could make of them what they will.
For the full list of videos, I’ve created a playlist, which is available on YouTube.
