Understanding the differences between Modernism and Postmodernism

I for one have never really understood the differences between Modernism and Postmodernism. The people at the Open University however do seem to know what it’s all about and have condensed it down into some brilliant short videos. These two movements, first Modernism followed by Postmodernism have become completely ingrained in and integral to western thought since their respective beginnings and now exist, some say simultaneously, and influence everything from art, design and filmmaking to architecture and writing.
