Analysis of baudrillard, simulacrum and simulation

  1. 1. Analysis of Baudrillard, simulacrum and simulation
  2. 2. Jean Baudrillard • Jean Baudrillard was born in 1929 and died 2007, was a famous French sociologist, philosopher, cultural theorist and a political commentator. His work is commonly associated with postmodernism and explicitly post structuralism. He is well known for his studies on mediation and communication. With his knowledge and understanding he wrote about controversial topics surrounding social history, consumerism and gender. Even though he highlighted many topics during his career he is very well known for his theory.
  3. 3. Jean Baudrillard Simulacra: Are copies that represent things that either had no original to begin with, or that no longer have an original. Simulation: is the artificial of the operation of a real-world process or system over time Points made by Jean Baudrillard -Medialization: The media which involves movies and television keep turning to history and to various “retro” recreations of the past is just a symptom for the loss of history. Baudrillard writes on the NBC how such media works continue the process of forgetting history. -Consumer Society: We live in a culture of consumption where so much has taken over our ways of thinking that reality is sieved through the logic of advertising, value and exchange. Jean Baudrillard states “Our society thinks itself and speaks itself as a consumer society. As much as it consumes anything, it consumes itself as consumer society, aside a Advertising is the triumphal paean to that idea” Hyper-reality: Is the division between “real” and simulation has collapsed, therefore its an illustration of an object that is no longer possible because the real object is not there. EXAMPLE Celebrities who reach a specific point where their lives is taken care of by someone are stated to live in a hyper-real world. In this example celebrities lose the ability to interact with people on a normal level and are isolated in hyper-reality. Fans of celebrities often tries to copy the life style and persona of the celebrity which makes the person believes he/she is genuily living in the same world as the celebrity. This concludes that people has become more engaged in the hyper-real world rather than the actual real world they live in.
