Abstract


An ironical way of world perception is peculiar not only to the absurd art. A detached metacultural ironical view is utterly tolerant, because it refers to no one moral-aesthetical system. Visual collages of the blog “Archemistry and Absurdecture” by O. Ermolaeva and A. Rappaport are remarkably ironical: while robbing the familiar visual objects of their meaning, they give those objects new unexpected and paradoxical meanings.


Keywords


visual culture; irony; collage; meaning-making
