The texts gathered in “El cristal se venga” were written by the cultural theorist José Luis Brea between 2007 and 2010. They reflect the Spanish thinker’s critical explorations between his two seminal books “Cultura_RAM / Mutaciones de la cultura en la era de su distribución electrónica” and “Las tres eras de la imagen”.
These texts trace a map of Brea’s criticism and cultural analysis as published in the online magazine Salonkritik and elsewhere. They explore the connections that exist between the author as a critic of the “present” and his theoretical work, demonstrating the lucidity and coherence of his thought as expressed in both his books and other projects.
