Abstract

The issue of aesthetics in postmodernism, unlike modernism, denies the aesthetic independence of political, social, and cultural issues, and accordingly, the paradigm of uncertainty in the trajectory of subversive discourses, without regard to objectivity and the issue of individual genius, resorts to techniques such as adapting and imitating previous ideas. Thus, it de-formalizes various cultural genres that have themselves been influenced by the process of modernization of late capitalist currents at the international level in the process of distortion. In the meantime, the intertextuality created by language games and electronic media sub-narratives, relying on the multiplicity of identities, blurs the line between reality and imagination in an aesthetic understanding of photomontage images. The purpose of this paper is to interpret the word "creation" as an adaptation in the process of creating photomontage images in an aesthetic way and based on the paradigm of the pluralism of the late capitalist era. Accordingly, it raises the main question of what interpretation of the photomontage model depicts the accelerated and multifaceted approach to the production of cultural symbols aimed at capitalist modernization in the path of postmodernist aesthetic discourse? Therefore, in a qualitative approach and in a descriptive-analytic study, documented data based on common themes among the variables in the research topic have been analyzed by content analysis method to conclude that the accumulation of space and time due to late capitalist culture with the central discourse of postmodernist aesthetics mixing path marks the atmosphere of cultural symbols that the idea of creating such a utopia of postmodernist atmosphere is compatible with the pattern of photomontage images and their imitation and fusion properties.
