From 'Passage' to 'Parly 2': commodity culture in Benjamin and Baudrillard
Graeme Gilloch, Tim Dant pages -


Gilloch and Dant compare works by Walter Benjamin and Jean Baudrillard, The Arcades Project and The Consumer Society respectively. They explore how both theorists explain the emergence of commodity culture in its contemporary form, and how this relates to ideas about language. This article also explores both theorists’ interest in nineteenth century collectors, particularly collectors’ characters and practices.
