The Artwork in the Age of its Mechanical Reproducibility by Walter Benjamin as told to Keith Sanborn (1936/1996)
© 1936 Jayne Austen
1936/1996. 3:38. Color. Stereo sound.
An attempt to problematize ownership and authorship in the age of digital reproduction. Inspired by the Walter Benjamin essay of the same name and the activities of the Situationists. If it could be authenticated that it were produced in 1936, this would make it the oldest known digital video work.
