« Mankind, which in Homer’s time was an object of contemplation for the Olympian gods, is now one for itself. Its self-alienation has reached such a degree that it can experience its own destruction as aesthetic pleasure of the first order. »
Walter Banjamin, The work of art in the age of of its mechanical reproducibility (1935)
