N2 - When participatory design (PD) was developed as a way of designing with the workers and not only for the workers (or for their boss), it was a new way of dealing with the politics of IT design. Today with the widespread adaptation of IT in settings where specific purposes or production processes are more difficult to define, it becomes clear that IT can no more be specified as just a tool and primarily related to the “base” of production. Instead, it becomes increasingly evident that IT design influences and is part of the “superstructure.” In this way, it seems obvious that we can learn from discussions within materialistic aesthetics about relations between the material basis and the ideological superstructure in order to find a way for discussing the political role of the cultural designer. With this in mind, this article turns to one of the founding theoreticians, Walter Benjamin, and one of the first texts, where he develops his materialist aesthetics, "The Author as Producer".
