... Conceptualism and Pomo : Conceptual art is art in which the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns.[w]
In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art. – Sol LeWitt, "Paragraphs on Conceptual Art", Artforum, June 1967.
Conceptualism is a doctrine in philosophy intermediate between nominalism and realism, that says that universals exist only within the mind and have no external or substantial reality. Modern conceptualism, as represented by Kant, holds that universals have no connection with external things because they are exclusively produced by our a priori mental structures and functions.
Conceptualism began in the first half of the c20th. Not as an artisitic movement but as a philosophy. As a questioning of what was taken for granted. The work of the Dadaists is fundamentally conceptualist. It questions the meaning of art itself. The work of Marcel Duchamp, in particular, is fundamentally conceptualist: Duchamp argued that the idea of a work matters more than its physical representation.
From Latin conceptum: something conceived, an idea.]

Do they exist -- man and woman?
... only memories of it? [ "sexless" = result of sexual revolution ]
Nothing help me : Ionesco (Lesson), Albee (Who is Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Shakespeare (sex wars)... nothing!
... Without love story Oleanna is simply a thought exercise!
