Arthouse Games

The tenancy is for people to consider "Art" in terms of high modernist principles of the creator genius. The differentiation made between Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Film, Literature, and Digital Arts e.t.c also miss the point in its entirety. These debates pre-date post-modernism, in which these distinctions, as well as the divide between author and spectator, have collapsed entirely. For a complete discussion see the works of great academics, including the attention given to the subject by Barthes and Echo.

Most scholars and academic critics have outgrown this debate, and those differentiations, in the early 70's.
