Sue de Beer: production still 'Hans und Grete'; 2002

Ook Jerry Saltz van Artnet signaleerde het, alleen heet het bij hem geen New Gothic maar Modern Gothic. En ook Saltz legt - ongetwijfeld volgens het boekje - het verband met 9/11 en de alomtegenwoordige somberheid, maar maant ons die in het geval van de Modern Gothic niet te zwaar op te nemen:

"Although many claim it's dead, irony thrives. Indeed, almost all art that could be called Gothic has an ironic edge: It's aware of its position, even the absurdity of its position, yet it persists with sincere tongue in ironical cheek. Artists are using images and symbols in ways that attempt to short-circuit the sense that things are controlled from without; they're trying to make them more expression-controlled and are investigating smaller systems of making meaning."

> Artnet met Modern Gothic - "Young critics are keen on it, magazines are featuring it, galleries are showing it" - over de tentoonstelling Scream: 10 Artists x 10 Writers x 10 Scary Movies in New York, en Saltz' favoriet Hans & Grete van Sue de Beer.
