In his seminal essay "The Work of Art in the Age of Automatic Reproducibility"("Das Kunstwerk im Zeitalter seiner technischen Reproduzierbarkeit", 1935/39), Walter Benjamin put forward the thesis that a work of art loses its aura due to reproducibility. In the past, artists such as Giorgio de Chirico and Andy Warhol have explored this thesis, be it with counterfeit versions of their own works or with multiple reproduction of a work. "Il n'ya pas de crocodiles a Codody" takes up this discussion by questioning the very concept of an aura. Ultimately, there are (no) crocodiles in Codody. Remix by Kalabrese.
