In this episode Jeff takes a look at three towering examples of postmodern art, and how they can aesthetically “move us” forward.
Cirque de Soleil – a thrilling display of surface without depth
The Seinfeld TV Show – a show not “about nothing”, just nothing meaningful
The Saatchi Gallery in London — fine art that dares us to say it’s not fine art
