Walter Benjamin on Mass Culture - Dictionary of Arguments
Habermas IV 558
Mass Culture/AdornoVsBenjamin/BenjaminVsAdorno/Habermas: on the question of the ideological character of mass culture, a front is formed between Adorno on the one hand and Benjamin on the other. While Adorno (with Löwenthal and Marcuse) irreconcilably contrasts the experience of authentic art with cultural consumption, Benjamin persistently sets his hopes on the profane illuminations that are supposed to emanate from a mass art stripped of its aura._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
