Pastiche. Cultural Memory in Art, Film, Literature (2001) is a book by Ingeborg Hoesterey.


Cultural theorists see contemporary society marked by radical hybridity in manifold social practices. Pastiche is about cultural memory as a history of seeing and writing. One of the markers that sets aesthetic postmodernism apart from modernism---nolens volens categories for the author--- are artistic practices that borrow ostentatiously from the archive of Western culture, which modernism, in its search for the unperformed, tended to dismiss.
