New Sincerity is a social and artistic movement based on a philosophy of seriousness, candor and authenticity. It is a reaction to a period of irony, sarcasm and cynicism that dominated areas such as punk music, postmodern art and film criticism in the years 1990-2010.
Hipsters, Narcissism & IronyHipster is a pejorative term for a subculture predominantly associated with retro street fashions. The hipsters are perceived as a pseudo-intellectual group who view themselves as a cultural elite. They embrace things not out of passion but out of a sense of narcissistic irony and sarcasm. For example, hipsters might adopt the counter culture fashions of the past but not because they think it's cool but rather because they think it's ironic that someone as cool as themselves would wear something from the past.
New SincerityNew sincerity as an artistic movement produces works that have empathy for their subject. As a social movement it is associated with subcultures who profess a passion for things.
