The Possibility of the Impossible
Michael Hirsch, Vanessa Joan Müller and Nicolaus Schafhausen
Commemorating Adorno’s 100th birthday, these two volumes consider the German writer’s still-radical theory that capitalism feeds the people the products of a “culture industry”—the opposite of “true” art—to keep them passive and politically apathetic. Volume 1, collected essays, focuses on aesthetic, cultural, historical and theological aspects of his theories; Volume 2 documents the exhibition, which featured Bruce Nauman, Ad Reinhardt and Louise Lawyer, among other artists.
