Beyond Postmodernism? Prince and Some New Aesthetic Strategies

  • Christian Bielefeldt
Keywords: Prince, postmodernism, musicology, pop music, aesthetics

Abstract

Former postmodernist Prince’s album Musicology (2004) re-occupies authorship and history, evoking a »real«, non-technological kind of music in the line of funk and hip-hop. The article is reading that as a strategy of »reflexive modernism«, an aesthetic challenging the postmodern denial of ontology with interim ontologies marked as such.
