2. Sphere: unsettles the authority: The relation to the subject is meaningless, like any inscription.

Text/Benjamin: New forms:
Flyers, brochures, magazine articles, posters: "Only this prompt language is adequately effective in the moment."
1. Necessity of new art forms
2. Integration of proletarian life and language forms
3. The journalistic monopoly of the newspaper.
