Benjamin o “Increasing emergence of the masses” Degradation of aura “Alignment of reality with the masses” How does the notion of equality fit in here? o Reproduction—> Access—> Fairness? Is aura important to the aesthetic experience? o Mona Lisa: Louvre vs. Online Is it the artwork itself that determines what kind of work it is, or is the medium itself  responsible? o What does/would Benjamin say? Imagine a society where sadness is valued above all other things, and people mainly seek our popular art forms for experiencing it. Wouldn't the saddest sounds and movies be  most popular and culturally relevant? o What are the most sought after emotions in popular media for our culture?

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
