A seminar held by Jacques Rancière, Philosopher and Professor of Aesthetics at the University París VII.


Aesthetics and Politics. A Bond to be Reconsidered

Aesthetic Policies.
How does the opposition between critical art, which changes our way of perceiving, and propositional art, which invents the space-time mechanisms for another way of coexisting, manifest itself today?

State of Politics, State of Art.
What should our general approach be to the relationship between sensitive forms created by artistic procedures and forms of political dissent?

Art Places and Institutions.
Where are we in relation to the symbolic pictures of culture, the realities of ‘cultural policies' and the theoretical tradition of the ‘critique of culture'?

What is an art critic today?
Is contemporary art condemned to ‘relational' modesty, or can it contribute to the reconstruction of a political space?
