Baudrillard Reframed

    By

    Jean Baudrillard has been a unique intellectual voice in many of the key debates and issues facing an increasingly globalised, media-driven world. Baudrillard Reframed offers the arts student and others working with Baudrillard's ideas an accessible overview of his better known arguments, as well as extending beyond them to critically engage with his radical notions of illusion, singularity and the fatal. Kim Toffoletti surveys the ideas of this influential - often provocative - French thinker as they relate to todayis image-saturated environment. She demonstrates their relevance to analysing contemporary visual phenomena such as advertising, photography, reality TV, fashion, art, pornography and virtual reality. Baudrillard's key themes and arguments are illustrated through a range of visual works, from the graffiti art of Banksy and Katherine Hamnett's protest t-shirts, to Sophie Calle's photography.
