Transformations Issue 15 – ‘Walter Benjamin and the Virtual’

Walter Benjamin and the Virtual: Politics, Art, and Mediation in the Age of
Global Culture

This edition of Transformations focuses on the influence Walter Benjamin
continues to have on contemporary thought. It seeks to create a dialogue
between contemporary scholars, theorists, and writers from a range of
disciplines and practices with Benjamin?s ideas on politics, art, and
representation in the context of a shift from mass to global culture. In
this increasingly privately mediated culture, virtually transmitted
communicational artefacts are playing an important role in not only shaping the nature of representation, but the nature of being human itself (link)
