The thoughts of Walter Benjamin −one of the leading philosopher of the twentieth century− correspond a period (the first quarter of 1900’s) in which the technical developments changed the shape of people’s perception and mass culture grew rapidly. According to the Benjamin, within the context of the culture industry, being in the state of dream (phantasmagoria) would be easier for the people who is reduced to the merchandise, entertainment would be welcomed, but many difficulties would be appeared against becoming free. With the appearance of the merchandise and entertainment ambience the artist would achieve the quality of “flaneur”. According to this context, benefiting from “aura”, “storyteller”, “flaneur”, which are assumed to be the basic concepts of Benjamin, seems to be very unavoidable.
