It is a response to an incredibly specific set of historical and intellectual circumstances, that are more or less unique to France: He divides art history into three “regimes”, the ethical regime art is not a separate category, but part of life, subject to the same “ethical” — in the literal sense of ethos — evaluations as everything elsethe representational regime art is a separate category defined as a particular kind of making, with a hierarchy of genres and correlations between subject matters and stylesand the aesthetic regime art considered as objects, mixtures of genres and styles — converges again with life, but in this case the evaluations of art are extended to life.

Film having emerged as a mass form of popular entertainment, it was therefore tempting, in the s, to see it as a modern equivalent of Greek drama or the medieval cathedral.

The Politics of Aesthetics

The Politics of Aesthetics rethinks the relationship between art and politics, reclaiming “aesthetics” from the narrow confines it is often reduced to. As he puts it, “what I try to do really is to target certain topic that both create some kind of discourse of political impotence and, on the other hand, either generate an idea that art cannot do anything or what you have to do is reproduce this stereotypical criticism of the commodity and consumption,” This is precisely what presupposes a split between the two domains, a necessity to de-neutralize art by making it articulate messages about the social world, or to withdraw it from its exclusive sphere by turning it into a direct instrument of intervention, from agit-prop to contemporary forms of intervention in deprived neighbourhoods or to the participation of artists as such in the big alter-globalization demonstrations.

This short collection of lectures and interviews with an “afterword” by Zizek demonstrates Ranciere’s horizontal analyses of combinations between systems of possibilities–art and politics are engaged in this “negative dialectic” as would be charged thw his critics or dialogical process that is closely related to his break with Althusser and concepts of Marxist thought.
