The Culture Industry Quotes by Theodor Adorno

Written by Stanley Warhol, Neha Cherian

“Illusory universality is the universality of the art of the culture industry, it is the universality of the homogeneous same, an art which no longer even promises happiness but only provides easy amusement as relief from labour.” (Theodor Adorno)

Adorno argues against the Culture Industry due to its mass manipulation which in turn renders art less artistic. In that, the injection of mass consumerism and capitalism into art has led to the loss of authentic art. He argues that the culture industry is interested in creating art that is meant to give momentary enjoyment to the mass rather than cater to the aesthetic. The saturation of mediocre entertainment in the market contains less and less art as it aims to capture as much as possible. The prioritization of monetary profit in the commodification of art molds the culture industry.

“The culture industry is not the art of the consumer but rather the projection of the will of those in control onto their victims. The automatic self-reproduction of the status quo in its established forms is itself an expression of domination.” Theodor Adorno

Adorno further explains the mass manipulation that goes into making the culture industry viable in the eyes of the consumers. He expounds that knack of the culture industry is not in concealing that they manipulating the masses but to get the consumers to not care either way. Therefore, he compares this type of manipulation to the fascist ideologies that are embraced by the masses despite deteriorating their well-being. The assertion expresses this dynamic and how it also brings forth a class divide that sees the domination of the consumers in the market.

Any authentic creation is a gift to the future

“Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future” by Albert Camus.

“Keep your language. Love its sounds, its modulation, its rhythm. But try to march together with men of different languages, remote from your own, who wish like you for a more just and human world.” by  Hélder Câmara.

Every country, every community are strongly tied together by an intricate tapestry of individual values, norms and a specific history, so to understand their culture is to understand them. Speaking to a person in a way which is sensitive to their own distinct, unique culture enables a brand to not only elicit the intended emotional response through branded communications, but also shows that the brand can be trusted to understand their consumer.

Culture and its impact on the communities it was born of is a beautiful, multifaceted entity which gives strength, identity and purpose to its people, and these culture quotes explore the reasons why we emphasise obtaining a true insight into the cultures we help brands to speak to.

Culture is the name for what people are interested in, their thoughts, their models, the books they read and the speeches they hear, their table-talk, gossip, controversies, historical sense and scientific training, the values they appreciate, the quality of life they admire. All communities have a culture. It is the climate of their civilization. (Source: 19 Insightful Quotes About Culture by Textappeal)

The cultural Consciousness 

We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society

“We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own.

For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent,

but which were given to us by our society” by Alam W. Watts.

When we become the transcreation partner of a brand, we ensure that all our services have deep roots in the culture of each target market. Our project managers connect with a network of in-house language specialists who become their trusted knowledge-base to ensure all assets are produced with a true understanding of the market’s consumer mindset.

在另一位詩人那兒,緩慢有時則來源於他對“前朝”或“祖傳”的熱愛,在談及那些“古老而溫馨的話題”時,趙野在窗玻璃那金色的反光中,可以反復緩慢地摩娑一隻老虎或一朵梅花的影子(《十四行詩》),當博爾赫斯的老虎或中國的梅花次第出現時,詩人的面孔已隱逸在時間的玻璃之後。在那些前朝或祖傳的事物中,許多時候早已被賦予緩慢的品質。除了梅花,緩慢的象征還有諸多,比如趙野常常提到的雲岫或梅子。在《字的研究》中,詩人寫到:“哦,這些花萼,這些雲岫,我的/白晝的敵人,黑夜的密友。”這里的“雲岫”,顯然和陶淵明在《歸去來辭》中所抒寫的“雲無心以出岫,鳥倦飛而知還”有著相似之處,這時的雲一定不是飛渡的亂雲,而是如王維所說的“行到水窮處,坐看雲起時”的雲,曼妙的雲。而梅子呢,則是漢語詩歌中很多人喜歡的,趙野在《春秋來信》中也提到了它:“那些秘密的歡樂,我夢中的梅子和薄荷”。宋代詞人賀鑄在《青玉案》中有這樣的句子:“試問閑愁都幾許,一川煙草、滿城風絮、梅子黃時雨”,賀鑄因為寫下了這句很著名的詞句而被人們稱為“賀梅子”。宋代詩人趙師秀在《約客》中也曾寫到過雨中的梅子:“黃梅時節家家雨,青草池塘處處蛙。有約不來過夜半,閑敲棋子落燈花。”曾幾在《三衢道中》則寫了放晴時的梅子:“梅子黃時日日晴,小溪泛盡卻山行。綠陰不減來時路,添得黃鸝四五聲。”但無論是雨天的梅子,還是晴天的梅子,都帶有緩慢的性質,就像趙師秀在等待客人到來的慢慢長夜一樣,燈花落了,手中孤單的棋子卻久久沒有落下來,梅子是緩慢的東西。在這兒,等待是基本的狀態,有時候,緩慢就是等待。(向以鮮:緩慢的隱喻——詩歌語言內在速度的文化觀照 / 2019年06月03日《詩刊》)

寂靜的冥想,是構成詩歌語言緩慢的內在速度的強大通道。法國十七世紀大思想家帕斯卡爾(Pascal)在《隨想錄》中寫道:這無窮的空間底永恒的靜使我悚栗!(向以鮮:緩慢的隱喻——詩歌語言內在速度的文化觀照 / 2019年06月03日《詩刊》)

宗教冥想者的主要姿勢是結跏趺座(编者(拼音:jié jiā fū zuò)),可以不依靠任何工具(或家具)來達成。中國古代,在椅子還沒有產生之前,人們以席地而坐或箕座而構成日常生活中的基本靜態。箕座或跽座是一種艱苦而難受的坐姿,古人在正式的社交場合或為了表達敬意時必須箕坐。這種很難持久的姿態顯然不利於冥想,椅子的出現為世俗冥想者提供了物質基礎。古代的椅子實際是一種外來之物,通常的家具史家認為它是由魏晉時代的胡床演變而來,至唐宋時期形成了現在意義上的椅子。但是在埃及文明中,椅子早在三千多年前就已成形,不知中國的椅子是否也曾受到埃及的影響。(向以鮮:緩慢的隱喻——詩歌語言內在速度的文化觀照 / 2019年06月03日《詩刊》)

事實上,作為時間藝術的詩歌,其內在速度大多時候是緩慢而非快速的,縱然是面對快捷無比的物象時,詩人也會有意無意間將之變慢,使之停留片刻,成為凝神的詩章。因此,詩歌語言在本質上更接近於音樂。蘇姍·朗格(Susanne Langer)認為:音樂揭示的是一種由聲音創造出來的虛幻時間,這個虛幻的時間並不是由時鐘標示的時間,而是由生命活動本身標示的時間,這個時間便是音樂的首要的或基本的幻象;在這個幻象中,樂曲在行進,和諧在生成,節奏在延續。虛幻的時間在詩歌中,成為構成內在速度的基本的幻象,可以稱之為速度的幻象。速度的幻象同音樂一樣,不受“時鐘”(物理時間)的約束,詩人常常會努力使速度的幻象慢下來靜下來,然後以詩歌的方式獲得永生。向以鮮:緩慢的隱喻——詩歌語言內在速度的文化觀照 / 2019年06月03日《詩刊》)
