"For the past five years, in fact for as long as we have been compiling the list, the top two places have been occupied by either Modernism or Post-Modernism. They have always vied extremely closely for first an second positions, but this year Post-Modernism was well to the front of the field.Our interest, as in previous years, must then turn to positions three and four if any prognosis about a sub-text to the dominant synthetic modernist paradigm is to be found, and as you can see I've started speaking in the awful jargon which it is my sad task to collate. Over the preceding years either Myth of Tragedy would be found fairly near the top of the list, often together in third and fourth positions. They have now dropped, like cultural cluster bombs, to positions eleven and eighty-three respectively. Fiction and Humour now occupy the coveted positions three and four on the list and this single event probably reveals more about contemporary trends in the visual arts in the early nineties than all the other art terms combined." " Some of the terms in this year's list have entered well into the top half, such as Flag. This is unusual and is mainly related to censorship issues centering on artists like Andres Serrano and Robert Mapplethorpe. Other terms in the list refer to the content of the censored work. I can predict confidently that when the 1992 list comes out referring to 1991 there will be a similar influx of terms relating to the Gulf War." "Still looking to the future and to the way previous years' listings have evolved, I would predict that many of the terms at the bottom of the 1991 list will rocket up the charts over the next twelve months. Those I am especially aware of include: "Hyper-realization, Falsificationism, and Death of the Curator." "Secondary Market was the highest climber leaping from 62 to 10 which tells us something about the investment and supply-side of the market. Neo-Geo plummeted from 9 to 79 which was equally revealing about paradigm changes within the areas of production and criticism."
