Jean Baudrillard’s “Le Xerox et l’Infini” – originally published in Paris, 1987 – as read by Patricia and Ellen. Recorded on 12 July 2009 by Vicki Bennett in Hersham, England.
Translation: Agitac, London, November 1988.
The original text in French can be read here.

“Jean Baudrillard is perhaps the most important theorist of the ‘after modern’. Though he says himself he has ‘nothing to do with postmodernism’, many interpret him (along with Jean-François Lyotard) as among the most important prophets of a truly postmodern era. His works have attracted high praise and derision all over the world.”

This touring exhibition, which originated at Edinburgh Printmakers, celebrates the vinyl record as an abiding audio-visual artifact and recalls the golden age of the record cover in the thick of the post-psychedelic, goth-surrealistic, Art Nouveau, apocalyptic landscape explosion, now being revived in a current resurgence of collectable limited edition records with original artwork.
