Abstract

ABSTRACT: This study aimed to compound a trajectory that demonstrates how the figures of the child and the collector find affinities in the Benjaminian philosophy. They share profanity as a behavior in ordering the world’s things, the deviant look at the choice of objects, and a mentality that can compose narratives and narratives with a repertoire of images that approaches the aesthetics of the oneiric world. There is in them a sensible reason that transforms into profane the consecrated world to the capital and, this way, produces a context of radical experiences, because it makes history from the rest of history. It is from this perspective that the child and the collector appropriate objects and situations and profane them by making them work in ways different from those that are officially attributed to them. In this consists the transforming power of profanation that sets new experiences and meanings for life and the context of pedagogical relationships. (AU)
