In this installment, guest narrator Riley Quinn (@raaleh) of the TRASHFUTURE podcast (@trashfuturepod) reads Walter Benjamin's seminal essay, in which he thoroughly investigates the process of change in art and how it mirrors changes in the methods of production and re-production, as well as how fascism co-opts these changes and inherently aestheticizes war and violence.
