The Artwork in the Age of Its Mechanical Reproducibility by Walter Benjamin as told to Keith Sanborn by Jayne Austen © 1936

Keith Sanborn. 1996. United States of America. No dialogue 3’

[640x480]

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 Situationist. If it could be authenticated that it were produced in 1936, this would make it the oldest known digital video work.
