Will there ever been a new movement in literature and other arts or will it just be internet postmodernism until the collapse of society? Will we ever see an art movement like there was in the past?

I used to dismiss this painting as boring but now that I look at it closely it's actually exquisitely composed.
Obviously what draws the attention initially is the column to the left but if you look down you see all the overgrown vegetation taking it back. Is this supposed to be Athens after being recently abandoned?
The painting is unmistakably of the Romantic movement, that kind of vegetation doesn't exist in Greece but it does exist in Central Europe. Those sorts of anachronisms, the little bird's nest at the top of column, the moon at dusk, it all comes together

Houllebecqian tragedy lit. Basically, lit which just complains about things like inceldom, alienation, the economy. Maybe some really fantasy fulfilling romance targeted at men. Otherwise, no. I think the Information Age has made things pretty hard for literature. You have to fight with Instagram, Tinder, YouTube, Netflix, and Crunchyroll for people’s very limited attention spans and the way that media has been transforming into this systemized repetitive thing doesn’t bode well. The novel adaptation is almost a thing of the past.

I do not know about literature, as I am embarrassingly not much of a reader myself.
But I can tell you for sure that anime as an art is alive and well, creating new movements and collectively exploring new themes.
For example, the overarching theme of anime up to 2013 was SekaiKei:
The individual vs the world as a holistic concept. The main question asked was: How is the world, and how could the world possibly be rearranged to make existence worthwhile.
It had common symbolism across multiple studios, and many shows where produced which all boiled down to the quest for the holy grail and more importantly daring to wish on the holy grail to recreate the world.
Some tried different answers, like relationships, friendship, stoicism, existentialism. But in the end it all boiled down to the realization that the individual wasn‘t corrupt, but the world itself.
And so the whole movement came crashing down around 2013 when all avenues were explored and exhausted, and the wish upon the holy grail revealed itself to be a wish to escape from reality in a great tragic twist inside the meta itself.
And this is the ACTUAL origin what is called the isekai genre. But do not be mistaken isekai is the new frontier of anime and fundamentally a philosophical movement. You can see deconstructions appearing which are tackling the actual hard problem of isekai: are we actually content with a simulacrum? And where is the border between simulacrum and reality? Does it even matter, what do we loose?
The Isekai genre itself is a metaphilosphical tragedy playing itself out right now. And I can‘t wait for the next chapter in this grand play.

That being said, I actually came to lit because I wanted to pick up reading and expected to find similar grand narratives in contemporary literature. And now you are telling me that it’s all just dead?

>grand narratives in contemporary literature
There was this whole movement in the latter half of the 20th century about grand narratives. Let's just say people (especially Jewish people) did not like the grand narratives in the first half and critiqued the entire concept.

Retard, the reason why the novel took off as an artform was because of capitalism.

"Every revolution was first a thought in one man's mind, and when the same thought occurs to another man, it is the key to that era. Every reform was once a private opinion, and when it shall be a private opinion again, it will solve the problem of the age." -- Emerson

There is lots of little mini-trends within our world. All can exist simultaneously because people have realised that movements in art are derived from a particular time, geographic and social context - as opposed to being the latest attempt at finding truth.
