"Um neunzehnhundert hatte die technische Reproduktion einen Standard erreicht, auf dem sie nicht nur die Gesamtheit der überkommenen Kunstwerke zu ihrem Objekt zu machen und deren Wirkung den tiefsten Veränderungen zu unterwerfen begann, sondern sich einen eigenen Platz unter der kunsterzsehen Verfahrungsweisen eroberte. (...) Die technische Reproduzierbarkeit des Kunstwerks emanzipiert dieses zum ersten Mal in der Weltgeschichte von seinem parasitären Dasein am Ritual."
"By 1900, technical reproduction had reached a standard on which not only did it attempt to make the entirety of the ancient works of art its object, and to subordinate their effects to the deepest changes, but to conquer its own place under this mode of operation. (...) The technical reproducibility of the artwork emancipated it for the first time in world history from its parasitic existence at the ritual."
Walter Benjamin, "Das Kunstwerk im Zeitalter seiner technischen Reproduzierbarkeit" / "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" (1935)
