But the difference between a and the spectacle is not a trivial one, as the idea of one system of images implies that individuals have little power to contest dominant constructions.

This is why modern conceptions of the spectacle tend to be associated with a very passive notion of spectatorship. More generally speaking, the term spectacle is often employed in a pejorative manner to criticize public entertainments for manipulating the public or distracting it from more-important social and political issues.

But the term need not be reduced to these pejorative or critical uses. In descriptive terms, a spectacle is a public display, or, to be more precise, a public event that is notable for its impressive appearance.

This definition includes a range of different visually oriented cultural forms, from live theatrical performances to inanimate museum exhibits to reproduced images in film and television.

No matter what form a spectacle takes, what is most important is that it is watched or seen, with the most spectacular events drawing the largest audiences. The dominant forms of spectacle also change over time; poetic performance was an important type of spectacle in ancient societies, whereas modern societies are dominated by reproduced spectacle.

The importance of reproduced spectacle in the postwar period, as television spread, no doubt strengthened the pejorative connection between spectacle and passivity.

An important question today, then, is whether the emergence of new media will undermine this idea of a public that passively consumes spectacles by providing a venue where people can respond to what they see or even circulate their own creations.
