Interpassivity : The Aesthetics of Delegated Enjoyment Hardback
Why do people record TV programmes instead of watching them?
Why are former alcoholics pleased to let other people drink in their place?
Why can ritual machines pray in place of believers? Robert Pfaller advances the theory of 'interpassivity' as delegated consumption and enjoyment. Richard Pfaller criticises dominant assumptions, offers an escape from prevailing ideologies and exposes how cultural capitalism promotes commodities with the promise of happiness.
