Neither highbrow or lowbrow; highbrow being high culture such as classical music, fine art, and opera, and lowbrow being popular commercial culture, like pop music, pulp fiction, Hollywood movies, animated cartoons, advertising, comic books.

Lowbrow popular or mass culture was criticised by some mid-twentieth cultural commentators, like Clement Greenberg as Kitsch, bad quality, poor taste consumerist culture without critical or progressive content.

One of the features of postmodern culture was seen to be the transgression of the boundary between high culture and low culture, and even the eradication of that distinction, due to strategies of borrowing, ironic citation, genre-blurring, sampling and re-mixing of material taken from both highbrow and lowbrow sources.
