Walter Benjamin, born today in 1892, was a German critical theorist and philosopher whose work greatly impacted modern aesthetic theory and Western Marxism. “Illuminations” is a collection of reflections on Kafka, Proust, and Baudelaire that also includes one of his most famous essays, “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction.” “Reflections,” a companion volume to “Illuminations,” is a selection of important autobiographical writings and aphorisms. Both titles are available in the Neue Galerie Book Store or online at shop.neuegalerie.org. #happybirthday #walterbenjamin #aesthetictheory #philosophy #manofletters
