VI. 1 April Andreas Huyssen What does it mean for woman to be mass culture’s other? -Mass culture/woman art/man -Women identified with masses... both are political threat How did Nietzsche describe this threat of public culture? -He used aesthetic terms… important passage: 51/ herd, female, Wagnerian -Women were associated with popular and mass culture, with everyday life Huyssen sees the ‘othering’ of mass culture as an important part of modernist project. Modernism needed to ‘fortify its boundaries.’ Where does Huyssen say that? Important passage: -54/ art must maintain adversarial stance -Modern art makes absolutist claims, Huyssen calls it “a one-party state”--he’s referring to the condemnation of kitsch -So, mass culture (and woman) are the other to the modernist project. important passage: 58/ both modernist art and mass culture bear the scars of capitalism, both contain elements of change. Both are torn halves a freedom to which, however, they do not add up.

    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.
