what a flattering and astute review of our Power House! thanks on behalf of all the folks here at T&K. I Love to think that Walter Benjamin may have enjoyed the Power House, and agree with the proposal - however mythical - that green technologies (read: opportunity for wholesale change) may enable redemption from our collective follies....

It's a great toy. I wish my kids were old enough to play with it. Keep up the good work!

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
