Yeah. It was a reactionary movement (which most are). Certain things have to be compromised, if only for a certain period, for art to progress. Most celebrated art and photography today is notable for its broad appropriation of the arts in general, so it's become acceptable again. In our age of uncertainty, trying to find answers, I think much art is attempting to summarize everything that's gone before in one concise statement. Seems that way to me.
