Ennui is the characteristic aspect of the contemporary world which is defined by its relationship to speed. “Whatever is solid and strong melts into thin air”, once Marks had claimed. What today we call ennui, is directly represented in its icons, its heroes and anti-heroes. The flaneur heroes who arise from wandering mass society life style only to reproduce the cacophony of the battle between good and evil , personified as Supermen, Batmen, Spiderman, etc… . If we accepts Walter Benjamin’s claim that the modern hero is not really a hero but merely is acting as one, in our post-modern era the hero emerges out of the hubris of popular culture and kitsch, characterized by the speed of mass consumption and addresses the anaesthetized masses as his audience. Heroes of this kind, typically originating from comic strips, in every decade, consistent with the demand of the masses, emerge of their fictional paper based or cybernetic world and become personified as people who want to make history and change the world in a way that it can’t remember the past. Superman is a superhero which carries the burden of a double personality : as an ordinary citizen living happily among the masses and as a super-hero who fights against monsters and calamities who try to disturb the order imposed by this same ordinary citizens , and of course they make wonders. Superman is a product of contemporary world’s amnesia, a world which trapped in the gages of every sort of banality adds layer upon layer on its forgetfulness. after overcoming the obstacles, this super-heroes of contemporary post-modern world return to their role in their everyday life just to remind us that this is a world which can sweep and forget everything (” whatever is solid and strong”) so quickly. Picturing this insomnia and ennui might be the task of today’s Art, to create image which is a criticism of a world which has abandoned its heroes and history, a critical task which today makes Art making more necessary than ever.
