Jacques Ranciere was a student of Althusser before he famously turned against his mentor now he s regarded as one of the major thinkers of our age In his new book he examines how the West can no longer simply extol the virtues of democracy by contrasting it with the horrors of totalitarianism br br As certain governments are exporting democracy by brute force and a reactionary strand in mainstream political opinion is willing to abandon civil liberties and destroy collective values of equality Ranciere explains how democracy government by all attacks any form of power based on the superiority of an elite Hence the fear and consequently the hatred of democracy amongst the new ruling class br br In a compelling and timely analysis i Hatred of Democracy i rediscovers the ever new and subversive power of the democratic idea, The theorists of art and film commonly depict the modern audience as aesthetically and politically passive In response both artists and thinkers have sought to transform the spectator into an active agent and the spectacle into a communal performance br br In this follow up to the acclaimed i The Future of the Image i Ranci re takes a radically different approach to this attempted emancipation First asking exactly what we mean by political art or the politics of art he goes on to look at what the tradition of critical art and the desire to insert art into life has achieved Has the militant critique of the consumption of images and commodities become ironically a sad affirmation of its omnipotence, i The Politics of Aesthetics i rethinks the relationship between art and politics reclaiming aesthetics from the narrow confines it is often reduced to Jacques Ranci re reveals its intrinsic link to politics by analysing what they both have in common the delimitation of the visible and the invisible the audible and the inaudible the thinkable and the unthinkable the possible and the impossible br br Presented as a set of inter linked interviews i The Politics of Aesthetics i provides the most comprehensive introduction to Ranci re s work to date ranging across the history of art and politics from the Greek polis to the aesthetic revolution of the modern age br br Already translated into five languages this English edition of i The Politics of Aesthetics i includes a new afterword by Slavoj Zizek an interview for the English edition a glossary of technical terms and an extensive bibliography, Only yesterday aesthetics stood accused of concealing cultural games of social distinction Now it is considered a parasitic discourse from which artistic practices must be freed But aesthetics is not a discourse It is an historical regime of the identification of art This regime is paradoxical because it founds the autonomy of art only at the price of suppressing the boundaries separating its practices and its objects from those of everyday life and of making free aesthetic play into the promise of a new revolution br br Aesthetics is not a politics by accident but in essence But this politics operates in the unresolved tension between two opposed forms of politics the first consists in transforming art into forms of collective life the second in preserving from all forms of militant or commercial compromise the autonomy that makes it a promise of emancipation br br This constitutive tension sheds light on the paradoxes and transformations of critical art It also makes it possible to understand why today s calls to free art from aesthetics are misguided and lead to a smothering of both aesthetics and politics in ethics
