Utopian pessimism for the twenty-first century. "it is enough to understand that Adorno’s principal criteria for an artwork that could jolt the spectator from false consciousness was its unintelligibility. Simply, the more unfathomable an artwork, the less likely it is to be measured, controlled, and co-opted by capital. In this light, it is precisely the millennial generation’s embrace of senseless messages—via “shitposting,” nihilistic music trends, and absurdist videos—that arguably align it with Adorno’s silver-lined negativity, however unwittingly." "The left, it turns out, can exploit the dissonance of memes too, alongside the right's parallel attempts to turn nihilism toward its own ends."

Thoroughly “relevant” article ^^ahha ha ha… Sorry In all seriousness though, I think Adorno’s relevance to a great deal of our contemporary predicaments can’t be understated. But holy crap it can be dense stuff, which is really tragic given how pertinent and applicable it is. I feel better (or slightly less hopeless, rather) whenever I find anything that makes Adorno more accessible & understandable Thanks for sharing! Good read 😁😉
