Famous quotes containing the words jean baudrillard and/or baudrillard:

    Boredom is like a pitiless zooming in on the epidermis of time. Every instant is dilated and magnified like the pores of the face.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    We are all hostages, and we are all terrorists. This circuit has replaced that other one of masters and slaves, the dominating and the dominated, the exploiters and the exploited.... It is worse than the one it replaces, but at least it liberates us from liberal nostalgia and the ruses of history.
    —Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
