1. Forgetting photography Abstract Much of our familiarity with the world as we know it derives from photographic visualization as a replacement for first-hand experience. Photographs have made many things seem quite ordinary and have allowed us to feel close to distant places. Does this render first-hand experience less important? ‘Forgetting photography’ imagines a photographless world. So much of our knowledge comes from photographs: in a life without them, much of that knowledge would be lost. How would celebrities or the royal family cope without photography? What would advertisements be like without being able to use photography to get their

7. Translational literature National literatures The word ‘literature’ likes to be located. It can be attached to a region of the world—‘African Literature’, ‘South American Literature’—or to a language: ‘Arabic Literature’, ‘Latin Literature’. Most of all, it clings to nation-states, especially European ones: ‘French Literature’, ‘Italian Literature’, ‘Russian Literature’. One especially complex example is ‘English Literature’. A typical ‘Eng Lit’ course at university will include some English-language writing from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the United States, India, Africa, Australia, and perhaps elsewhere. But it will present all this diverse material as being related to the culture of the nation of England

1. The Frankfurt School The Institute for Social Research was founded in 1923. Growing out of a Marxist study group, which sought to deal with the practical problems facing the labor movement in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, this first Marxist think tank was funded by Hermann Weil. He was an enlightened businessman, who made his fortune on the grain market in Argentina. The money was given at the urging of his son, Felix, who considered himself a “salon Bolshevik.”

8. The great refusal Telos and New German Critique began gaining an audience and publicizing its most important representatives. Complicated ideas about alienation, the domination of nature, regression, utopia, and the culture industry made critical theory relevant for young intellectuals who were coming of age amid the turbulence of the times and trying to make sense of what was happening around them. But the rebellion and the solidarity of the young employed the culture industry. That made its radical character no less real. It soon enough became apparent that art is not a lost cause even after
