SZPILBARG, Daniela  y  SAFERSTEIN, Ezequiel. From 'culture industry' to creative industries: an analysis of the mutation of the concept and its contemporary uses. Estud. filos. práct. hist. ideas [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.2, pp.99-112. ISSN 1851-9490.

The following article takes as its starting point the concept of Culture Industry from its leading exponents, and exposes its current uses. The Culture Industry began like a philosophical concept, as part of the work of the Frankfurt School authors, Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer, with contributions of Walter Benjamin. Nowadays, this concept definition has mutated, being used instrumentally by the state and international organizations, to define the cultural and symbolic production according to economic parameters. In this sense, paying attention to that idea of Culture Industry, we can see that there is a path in which the possibilities of meanings of art and culture are changing. The social function of art is subordinating behind the commodity production, although in recent years the culture appears as an engine of economic development and identity. This transition will be illustrated accounting for changes in the sector in the case of Argentina.

Palabras clave : Cultural Industry; Critical Theory; Creative Industries; Culture and Economy; State.
