EXHIBITION

AURA

- at the intersection of reproducible and unique art -

 

14 June – 31 August

Dana László da Costa, Johanna-Maria Fritz, Ganna Ki

Walter Benjamin's essay The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, published in 1935 while he was in exile in Paris, is perhaps best known for its afterword and the thesis that fascism aestheticizes politics (more precisely: war), while communism politicizes art. However, his other ideas, formulated like the program of a manifesto, are still hotly debated in literary, cultural, film and art studies to this day. The current exhibition AURA at galerie probst in collaboration with ARTCO Gallery Berlin aims to transport this essay into a contemporary context and explore the tension between art that cannot be reproduced and art that does not exist without its technical reproduction.
