The Arcades Project

The Walter Benjamin shirt!

The Arcades Project (in German, Das Passagen-Werk) is a monumental ruin, meticulously constructed over the course of thirteen years--"the theater," as Benjamin called it, "of all my struggles and all my ideas."

If Walter Benjamin was alive today he would have already made this shirt

Love it 5$


I'm afraid for this design... I'm really, really hoping that some of the people who make snap judgments on this site stop and take the time to understand how wonderful this design is! And you don't even have to know who Benjamin is to love it... it's beautiful!

(I'm so pushing for this shirt... Benjamin took up about 15 pages of my thesis-- "Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" was a LARGE part of the driving force behind it... I NEED this SHIRT!)

without reading a stick of the website or blogs I loved it right away.. so cute!



Please no pink for ladies....I said please :(


I have no idea who Walter Benjamin is and in no way would you need to know to love this shirt. I would put the letters closer together, but that's it. I'm going to get this shirt and hit the ZAXXON machine for about an hour.
