Concept of Immanent Aura

Summary/Abstract: This article is devoted to the concept of „immanent aura.” In the first, historico-philosophical part, I discuss the theory of art presented by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari in the work 'What is Philosophy?' In the second part, using concepts taken from these philosophers, I ana-lyze selected works, included in the entertainment culture (inter alia black and viking metal music as well as computer games). I try to demonstrate that they can be considered as works of art, because they meet the requirements imposed by Deleuze and Guattari. In the last part I argue with the Benjamin’s concept of “aura” of the work of art, to show that mass reproduc-ibility and availability does not lead to the disappearance of the aura but its transformation: from transcendent the aura becomes immanent.
