3 Golden Ages in the Arts

3 Golden Ages in the Arts

From 1990 to 2020 there was a golden age of technology but no golden age of content in the arts. The mainstream mega corporations invented new tech, but couldn’t find content to fill them!

Through the last 30 years there has been a consolidation of companies connected to the arts and media into fewer and fewer hands. This consolidation has ruined almost all the arts from music, writing, and art, to film, theater, and dance.

But there are these 3 exceptions. They all have something in common. They all developed outside the control of the giant media art conglomerates. That means that in every case thousands competed, not 5 or so mega corporations like in the mainstream generic arts.

These three still remain unappreciated and underreported by the mainstream media.

Here are 3 that stand out for me.

1. Zines. The late 80s and 90s were the last golden age of literature before the net.
2. Online bloggers, and original youtube channels, are the new radio and TV. 3. The Korean wave of both K-Pop and K-Dramas developed innovative music and TV / films.
