Summary/Abstract: One of Benjamin’s key notions is a well-known assertion about the death of the aura, which comes as a result of the possibility of the work of art to be reproduced. That also means that our experience is inevitably changing with the process of modernization. The main goal of this paper is to consider the actual worthiness of these notions, and Benjamin’s legacy as well. That significance, among others, lies in providing better and more proper understanding of contemporary artistic practices.
