Abstract

In contrast to Benjamin, who linked the loss of the aura to the technical reproduciblity of the artwork, Handke's text strips the music box of its commodity character, as it were, and re-establishes the auratic appearance in the age of mass culture. The narrative search for a lost artefact of the culture industry turns into a complex reconstruction of biographical, aesthetic, and cultural-historical traces. (author-supplied description)
