schema:reviewBody""The Politics of Aesthetics rethinks the relationship between art and politics outside of the models established by the Marxist tradition, the Frankfurt School, and the more recent contributions made by the post-structuralists. Reclaiming aesthetics from the narrow confines it is often reduced to, Jacques Ranciere reveals its intrinsic link to politics by analyzing 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." "Presented as a series of interlinked interviews, The Politics of Aesthetics provides the most comprehensive introduction to Ranciere's work to date. Ranging across the history of art and politics from the Greek polis to the aesthetic revolution of the modern age, it includes incisive analyses of the uses and abuses of the concept of modernity, the relationship between art and mechanical reproduction, the logic of facts and fiction in history, the positive contradiction at work in modern literature, and the notion of politicized art."--BOOK JACKET."
