Jean Baudrillard and postmodernism

We’ve covered a lot of Jean Baudrillard so I’m not going to go over much of the issues around him as they’re all in my notes above too! The majority of the lecture though did circle around the ideas that Baudrillard proposed with his take on hyperreality and simulacrum. This is what influenced Marxism’s take upon the we way in which the world is shaping and the relationship that we have created with the products and labour involved with the things we create.
