Throughout art history, the practice of collage has motivated the beginning of progressive Modernism and the decadent Postmodernism, leading to the enunciation of the end of art. Thus, during the course of this paper I will be exposing how the practice of Quantum Filmmaking, or participatory video-collage building upon the contemporary mobile media, may be inspiring the initiation of a new cultural epoch in the 21st century with the innovative avant-garde spirit of progressive Modernism. This paradigm shift entails the beginning of “art for the arts’ sake” or the Neo-autonomy of art from the ideological strings of the market and institutions.
