We’re in Heaven

In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, life is presented as an immense accumulation of spectacles.

The illusory paradise representing a total denial of earthly life is no longer projected into the heavens, it is embedded in earthly life itself.

The specialization of images of the world has culminated in a world of autonomized images where even the deceivers are deceived.

The spectacle is the bad dream of a modern society in chains and ultimately expresses nothing more than its wish for sleep. The spectacle is the guardian of that sleep.
