Abstract

Jean Baudrillard is recognised as a unique intellectual voice in many of the key debates and issues facing an increasingly globalised, media-driven world. Baudrillard Reframed offers students and others working with Baudrillard’s ideas an accessible overview of his better known arguments, as well as extending beyond them to critically engage with his radical notions of illusion, singularity and the fatal. Kim Toffoletti surveys the ideas of this often provocative French thinker as they relate to today’s image-saturated environment, demonstrating the relevance of his work to analysing contemporary visual phenomena such as advertising, photography, reality TV, fashion, art, pornography and virtual reality.
