Description:
Dismissed as a miserable elitist who condemned popular culture in the name of "high art," Theodore W. Adorno (1903-1969) is one of the most provocative and important yet least understood of contemporary thinkers. This book challenges this popular image and re-examines Adorno as a utopian philosopher who believed authentic art could save the world. Adorno Reframed is not only a comprehensive introduction to the reader coming to Adorno for the first time but an important re-evaluation of this founder of the Frankfurt School. Unafraid to talk about human nature, undaunted by dogmas regarding cultural construction, influenced by Kant, Hegel, Freud, Marx, Nietzche and Kierkegaard, Adorno loved art that hurts, that challenged the prevailing culture of the day and resisted the managed, commodified pseudo-happiness of "administered society." Using a wealth of concrete illustrations from popular culture, Geoffrey Boucher recasts Adorno as a revolutionary whose subversive irony and profoundly historical aesthetics defended the integrity of the individual against social totality. Grounded in contextualized analysis of artists ranging from Stockhausen and Kafka to David Lynch and Brett Easton-Ellis, Adorno Reframed takes its subject from interwar modernity into the postmodern and feminist present to examine the legacy and influence of Adorno's radical modernism.
